Second night of shootings in Cape Girardeau

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - Could you imagine someone shooting into your home while you were inside? Well it's happened again for the second night in a row in Cape Girardeau.
Meanwhile, the victims are all very shaken up, one victim tells me she changed neighborhoods to get away from crime, and still became a target. "I heard something go pow pow pow. I could see light like lightning flash through my bedroom window," "Jamie" as she wants to be identified, was putting her four month old grandson to bed when someone fired at her home.
One of the bullets came right through her wall and another one went through the window and into the house. The bullet cut a path through the living room walls into the dining room, grazed the ceiling and went through the blinds. Another bullet is still lodged in a wall.
Jamie's sister and friend were outside, and say all they could do was watch in shocked silence as four black men, shattered the stillness of their peaceful neighborhood. "We could all have been shot or hurt we could've died. Thank God we didn't," Jamie says.
Victims in both shootings claim they have no idea why they were targeted, but they want the gunmen off the streets. "My 16-year-old is terrified, and says she doesn't want to go back outside. I hope they catch the people who done it," Jamie says.
