Atlanta family living in fear after their home was shot dozens of times

- An Atlanta family is living in fear after someone shot up their home.

Dozens of shots were fired at the southwest Atlanta home. Bullets shattered windows, bent metal grates, and pierced the outside wall lodging in picture frames and the ceiling. 

"I haven't slept in three days, up all night looking out the window making sure don't nobody else come out and shoot my house up," says the mom who lives here. 

The homeowner, who did not want to be identified, says she doesn't know who fired the shots, but believe it has something to do with a deadly shooting last weekend. About a mile from their house a man was shot to death in the parking lot of an Exxon gas station on Cleveland Avenue. Atlanta Police identified the man as Brodis Clay. 

The homeowner says her daughter knows Clay, but says her daughter wasn't anywhere near the gas station that night. 

"They want someone to blame but they can't blame me because I don't know what's going on," says the daughter. 

The daughter says hearing the bullets hitting her home was terrifying. She is in a wheelchair after being paralyzed in a shooting six years ago.

Atlanta Police could be seen driving past the home Friday evening. Investigators won't comment on any connection between the fatal shooting of Brodis Clay and the home being shot up, saying it's an active investigation. 

The homeowner says she's just worried about her family and wants it all to stop. 

"i just want them to leave us be. Let us live in peace, not in fear," she said.
