BRIDGEPORT - A woman in Bridgeport says she is moving after at least 15 bullets were fired into her house over the weekend.

The owner of 217 Lewis St. in Bridgeport says she is too afraid to return to her home with her four children.

Some of the rounds barely missed the children, who were sleeping at the time the shots were fired.

"I'm scared of the people out here," she says.

Detectives have not determined if the house was targeted.

The family says they have no idea where they will go next but that for now, they will be staying with friends.

Police say more shots were fired one block away the same night.
