Sherman Police Investigate Gunshot Into House

Posted:

SHERMAN, TX --Police are looking for suspects after a man says someone fired a gun into his house early this morning.

A resident on East Pecan Street says he woke up to the sounds of breaking glass and then saw bullet holes in his house. He says he is lucky no one in his family was hurt.

"Maybe 12:30 at night, I was sleeping," says Sherman resident Jose Hernandez Sanchez, who showed us a bullet hole in his bathroom door and a bullet hole in his front window. "Very scary for my wife, my family."

Sanchez found his shower door shattered in pieces and called police. Officers say they found evidence that a bullet had been fired through the house.

"It was quiet and then all of a sudden, bam, bam," says Tony Cerda, who says he was falling asleep when he heard the gunfire. "It was quiet after that, I didn't hear anybody running I didn't hear anything other than the car speeding off just a few seconds after that."

Police say given that a shot was fired through a home with a family inside, it is very lucky that everyone escaped unharmed. "Nobody was injured during this, but it is one of those things that is very dangerous," says Sgt. D.M. Hampton. "Obviously, when you've got a bullet that's penetrating through several walls and you have adults and children that are inside of a residence, somebody could have been seriously injured or killed."

Sanchez believes someone may have fired right through the open bathroom window. Police are investigating where the bullet came from. "If the person was in a car or on foot that hasn't been determined yet," says Hampton.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact the Sherman Police Department.
