Gunshots Fired At Home Of Robeson School Board Chairman

Posted May 20, 2002

— Detectives in Robeson County are trying to find out who is responsible for firing shots at the home of the county school board chairman.

Patrick Bullard said the three front windows of his home were riddled with bullet holes early Friday. Bullard said shots were also fired into interior walls, including the room where his youngest daughter was sleeping.

Officials said some of the shots went right over the head of Bullard's wife, who was sleeping on the couch with her son.

"She jumped up screaming, crying and yelling that somebody had just shot into the house. I got up, got the kids in one room and tried to assess things from there," Bullard said.

No one was hurt.

Bullard said he believes the shooting was in retaliation for a controversial vote he made to replace the current school superintendent.
