Denis said the couple in the home reported they thought they heard fire crackers until the woman fell to the floor when she was struck in the leg by a bullet. She is expected to recover from her injury.

Lewis says he had no idea what to think of the gunshot sounds. Same goes for the victims. A police report states the two victims thought the gunshots were fireworks, until on was hit by a bullet.

"They weren't trying to scare anybody, that's for sure,” said Lewis. “They meant business."
