Black said she was inside her home at 65th Street SW when she heard popping sounds from outside.
Black said, “I heard a pow, pow, pow, and I thought it was someone banging on something.”
Black heard a few more pops, and then her son came running back in the house and said he heard something fly by his head.
Black said, she discovered a hole from a bullet that entered through an outside wall, went through an inside wall and got lodged in a kitchen wall.
The Lee County Sheriff’s Office responded to her home and found a slug from a 50-caliber gun lodged in the kitchen wall.
“I’m pretty much freaked out about it,” Black said. “That’s a big bullet.”
Black doesn’t believe anyone was targeting her house, but she said it’s still scary to think someone was shooting off a gun nearby, especially so close to a residential area where families live.
The sheriff’s office interviewed several neighbors who heard the shots, but no one knew where they came from.
