Sleeping Teenager Grazed By Bullet After Several Homes Hit By Gunfire

CHARLOTTE, N.C.- Police are trying to figure out who opened fire early Monday morning in a northwest Charlotte neighborhood, hitting several houses and injuring a sleeping teenager.

Police were called around 4 a.m. to the Windy Ridge subdivision, on High Winds Lane off Rozelles Ferry Road.

Detectives said four homes were hit by gunfire, and that one bullet grazed a 15-year-old girl’s leg while she slept inside her house on Palm Breeze Lane.

She was taken to the hospital but will be OK, police said.

Neighbor Samuel Silas told Eyewitness News reporter Anthony Kustura that he immediately dropped to the ground to find a place to hide.

Officers were interviewing witnesses but do not have any details about whoever pulled the trigger.
