— Four people were inside a Henderson home when it was riddled with bullets early Monday.

More than 30 bullets hit a house at 4297 Warenton Road around 1:30 a.m.

Ammania Williams was inside the home when the gunfire erupted.  The 80-year-old woman said just before the shots, someone came to the front door.

"Somebody was just knocking the door down, beating on the door,” she said.

Williams said she was about to answer her door when the gunshots hit the house.

"Then all at once, there was shooting and then shooting,” she said.  "I don't know why in the world someone would shoot my house up like this."

Williams' son, Norman Williams, was down the street when the shots rang out.

"I heard pop, crackle shots,” he said.

Police have not made any arrests, but Norman Williams said he thinks the shooting is tied to drugs and gangs. He also said a relative could be involved.

"I think my nephew and neighbors know something about it,” he said.

No one was injured and the investigation into the shooting continues.
