Bullet holes found in Jonesboro home

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Bullet holes were discovered in a Jonesboro home and the owners aren't sure how they got there.

Police were called out to a home on Parkside Drive Thursday morning when the owners discovered 3 bullet holes in the side of their house.

The owners told Region 8 News the bullet went through the siding on the corner of one wall, making two holes, then exited and hit another wall where it still remains.

The homeowners are not sure the exact time when the bullet was shot, but they say it was sometime after Sunday when the lawn out back was mowed.

Region 8 News spoke with neighbors around the Parkside neighborhood and some said this is not a rare occasion.

"You'll be out sitting on your front porch and you hear it and then you have to go back into the house because you don't know what is going to happen," neighbor Rich Bergner said.

Bergner said he hears gun shots near his home about 3 or 4 times a week.

He said police patrol the area regularly on bike or by car, but most of the time the shootings happen before the cops can get there.

The owners of the home that was shot said they hope this does not happen again and that the neighborhood can stay safe.
