JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Gunshots early Wednesday morning shattered a Jonesboro woman’s peace and her front window.

The victim told police a “black male wearing a black hat and black shirt” knocked on the front door of her home in the 400-block of North Bridge at 4:20 a.m.

When she asked who he was, she said he said something she did not understand then left.

About five to ten minutes later, the woman said she and her young daughter were sitting on the couch when they heard two gunshots and the window behind them shattered.

The woman said she and her child ran to the bathroom then called police.

Four children, ranging in age from 5 months to 7 years of age, were in the home at the time of the shooting.

The woman said she had “no idea” who would want to shoot her home.

According to the initial police report, the double-paned window and the blinds had “large holes in them.”

Another bullet apparently struck the home’s siding, but did not penetrate the interior.

Police also reported finding two .22 caliber casings in the street directly in front of the home.

A man who lives directly across from the home told police at 4:30 a.m. a “black male wearing blue jeans” knocked on his door, but he did not answer.

He said he then saw taillights traveling south on Bridge Street.
