Gunshots hit Germantown apartment complex with children inside

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) – People who live inside an apartment complex in Germantown are uneasy after shots were fired and hit windows. Metro police said people were inside when their windows were smashed. Neighbors say they saw families running past Randee Rogers’ apartments moments after the shots were fired.

“They were just shouting ‘my house has been shot down, my house has been shot down’ and there were two of them,” said Veronica Cunningham, a resident.

Cunningham said he spotted two people firing at least a dozen shots.

“He started shooting in the air, and the next thing you know there’s someone on the other end shooting at him,” she said.

Police said bullets hit three separate apartments on Rosa Parks Boulevard. They say glass shattered and fell on a nine-year-old child after a bullet went through a window.

“Luckily no one was hurt because they have kids, you can see bikes on the porch,” Cunningham said. “They just built these apartments. They haven’t been there for a month or two and they are already ready to move.

While Metro Police say no one was injured in the incident, Cunningham said neighbors were not happy about it.

“They want to raise prices to live here, and it’s like we’re risking our lives every day living here,” she said.

The Metropolitan Police say they have solid leads in the case. They say three men fired shots at a woman who also fired in the air.

Witnesses say she had brown or orange dreadlocks and an orange hoodie.
