Woman grazed, kids unhurt, in drive-by shooting
JSO: Woman just returned from grocery store; her 2 children unhurt
A Jacksonville mother is recovering Monday night after being grazed by a bullet Sunday outside of her Jacksonville home around 9:15 p.m.
Louise Wilson was released from the hospital Monday after police said she was grazed by a bullet on West 32nd Street off of Moncrief Road.
Nicole Grant, Wilson’s daughter, still cannot believe what happened to her mother. Police said Wilson was getting out of her car with her two children inside when shots rang out.
“She was sitting in the driver’s seat, it came over the passenger’s side,” said Grant. “I’m hoping they find them, catch them and lock them up.”
Police said Wilson was grazed by a bullet, but thankfully her 8-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter were not hurt during the gunfire.
Grant told Channel 4 that her mom was hit on the side and is still very stressed about what happened to her.
“She is not doing okay," Grant said. "She in a bad situation. For her to be in her house like this, it’s just that she cannot come home at peace from work. She come home every day, it’s just so stressful.”
Evidence technicians were at the home on Monday afternoon taking pictures and continuing their investigation to figure out who is responsible for Sunday night’s shooting.
“You shouldn’t have to live like this because it’s a place for us, my mom and my little brother, and they can’t go out. The kids can’t go out to play, it’s real bad,” said Grant.
Police are still looking for whoever is responsible for the shooting in front of Wilson’s home Sunday. Anyone with information is being asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
