TROY - Bullets flew through the window of an apartment on Fifth Avenue in Lansingburgh Monday night, narrowly missing two young brothers.
Police say it was a drive-by shooting -- and they say bullets hit this same building two weeks ago.
It's tough to see from the outside, but from the inside of the apartment the bullet holes are clear.
The shots nearly hit brothers Kyree and Kyroo, ages 6 and 7.
“I was in the bathroom washing my baby up, heard gunshots,” said their mother, Rose. “I ran to see what was going on thinking it was the neighbors or kids outside and I saw holes in my window.”
Three shots hit a front window. One bullet also went right through the wall in her boys’ bedroom.
“So I grabbed my boys off the bed because the holes were literally right above my kids’ heads,” she recalled. “It was less than an inch above their head,” she added.
Rose isn’t sure why anyone would shoot at her apartment. She thinks this may have something to do with another shooting here exactly two weeks ago. She says the first-floor apartment was hit in that drive-by shooting.
Police confirm bullets hit this same building on Sept. 3. They don't know yet why it's being targeted
Rose does not want to stick around to find out. She's packing up her family and moving on.
“It's just me and my children. So I don't have problems with anybody,” she said.
No one was injured.
Troy police are seaching for a white SUV that was seen in the area when the shots were fired.
