Bullets barely miss sleeping children

Posted: Updated:
GARDEN CITY, GA (WTOC) -

It was a close call for young children at Chatham City Apartments on Friday night after gunfire came into their bedroom.

Witnesses say they heard four or five gunshots just before 3 p.m. Friday.

One of the shots went right through a child's bedroom window.

"It's nothing but windows in this apartment. If I got up I was nervous it would wake the kids up and they would move around and get shot," the boys' mother Tiffany Ugley said.

She said she became alarmed when she heard the shots and saw the window shatter.

Garden City police found shell casings closeby.

A church down the street also had one of their front windows shot out.

Witnesses say it was a group of young men. Police said one of them was wearing a gray hoodie and the other was wearing a yellow jacket.

If you have any information, call Garden City police or CrimeStoppers at 912.234.2020.
