Columbus couple in fear after their home was shot up twice in two weeks

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A couple in Columbus say they have lived on Curry Street for more than 20 years, and in the month of February alone, they have had their home shot up twice.

Mr. and Mrs. Walker say one of those drive-bys happening Tuesday night when Mr. Walker was home watching television. He says he heard gunfire break the windows of his home, travel through his living room, and damage his bicycle.

"We don't feel comfortable in this living room, dining room or the den at night," says Mrs. Walker.

Mrs. Walker was on her way home from work when she got a call from her husband saying the house had been shot at for the second time in two weeks. The first time happened two days before Valentine's Day when the couple was making plans for the holiday.

No one was injured during those drive-bys, but Mr. Walker did say that if he or his grandchildren were in the living room he probably would have been shot in the leg or in the back.

This family says recently there was also a body found two doors down from them and they think it's linked to the random gunfire they've been experiencing. They have spoken to police about these drive-bys and officials say that they are investigating.

This family says they are only looking for peace and want to ensure safety for themselves and their grandchildren.
