Weekend Shooting Incident Investigated

May 8, 2017

On Sunday May 7, 2017 a resident who lives on NE 210 Avenue in East Williston was awakened at 4 a.m. by a crashing sound inside his home. He investigated the sound but did not find anything wrong and went back to bed. At approximately 9:30 in the morning he discovered a bullet hole through his front window and called 911.

Deputies discovered someone fired a gun from outside the home. The bullet entered the resident’s north facing window, went through a recliner then lodged in the homeowner’s entertainment center. The bullet was recovered and it appears the weapon is a 9mm handgun.
The homeowner told investigating deputies this is not the first time his home has been shot. Approximately one month ago his front door was also shot.
