Shots Fired At North Columbus Home During Birthday Party


UPDATED: Tuesday January 8, 2013 6:24 AM

A woman who was celebrating her birthday Sunday evening with her teenage sons said that her home was shot at leaving a dozen bullet holes.

Yvette Brown was in the middle of her party on Leona Avenue around 5 p.m. when she said shots were fired.

"They were showing me the cake and I was opening my gifts and then we just heard some loud popping sounds," said Brown.

Brown said they also heard glass breaking and that's when they realized it was gunfire.

The family got on the floor, not knowing when the firing would stop.

"They were so close. It sounded like they were coming from the porch," added Brown.

No one was injured in the attack, but bullet holes could be found everywhere in the home including the living room, kitchen and bathroom.

There was also one bullet lodged near her son's bed.

It was a shock to the family that has recently moved to Columbus.

"We tried to start all over, start a new life. Just starting today was the first day that the kid's were going back to school and it's just hard to get started like this," said Brown.

Brown said that they just moved to the home last month and she does not know who may be behind the shooting.

Police are continuing the investigation.
