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.

"It was a bad situation and bad experience, I can tell you,” said George Lewis, father and next door neighbor of one of the victims.

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."
