Kimberly Davis recounts hearing shots fired at a neighbor's home on Crestwood Terrace in Warner Robins. A woman inside the home suffered a non-life threatening injury to the leg, police said.

Police were dispatched early Monday to a 'shots fired' call in the 900 block of Crestwood Terrace.

Arriving officers were told that the front of a house had been shot up by unknown persons and an unknown vehicle had driven off afterward, Assistant Chief John Wagner said in an email.

A 40-year-old woman who had been inside the home told police that she was struck by a bullet and drove herself to the hospital, Wagner said.

The woman had a non-life threatening injury to her leg and was treated at Houston Medical Center, Wagner said.

Two other adults inside the home at the time of the incident were not injured, Wagner said.

Police found shell casings from a small caliber weapon at the scene and several bullet holes in the home, Wagner said.

"I feel like with the rounds found, it more than likely meant persons fled after shooting rather than driving by," Wagner said.

Kimberly Davis, who lives around the corner from the shooting location, said she heard several shots fired.

The gunfire was so loud she thought it was the house next to hers.

"Probably right before, right after midnight, I heard a car come to a screeching halt. Heard about six shots, and then it took off pretty quickly, and, so, I called the police. And that's pretty much all know."

Although she looked out her bedroom window, Davis said she did not see the vehicle or the persons who fired the shots.

"I seen the police out there, but you know, being in a wheelchair, I didn't go outside," Davis said.

Other neighbors also reported hearing shots fired but did not see the shooters or vehicle.

Crime scene investigators on scene Monday marked gunshot holes in the front of the house and placed numbered placards where shell casings were found.

In the same neighborhood last summer, a 63-year old woman was sitting in her house at 1313 Alma Ave. watching TV when shots were fired at her house, Wagner said.

No one was injured in the Aug. 15 shooting. Police found a bullet that struck a window.

Anyone with information about Monday's incident is asked to call Warner Robins police Detective Paul Peck at 478-302-5380, or or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME.
