HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

An Edwards family is looking for justice after being victims of a drive-by shooting. The Anderson/Wilson family said thankfully, no one was injured when a bullet came flying through their carport and inside their living room Sunday night.

"My son had called us on the phone and said mama somebody is shooting in the house," said Angela Anderson Wilson. "So when I got in I saw the bullet holes in the house and in the walls."

Wilson, the homeowner, said she believes her home was a random target for the act of violence that could have potentially been deadly. She wasn't home when it happened, but her family was.

"It come through here, ricocheted, it scraped the ceiling right here," said a family member. "It fell right here. They had the casing right here, but they picked it up last night."

The family said they believe they know the person responsible for putting their family in danger. At this time, Hinds County Sheriff's Office has some leads.

"We are now following up on some leads," said Chief Deputy Chris Picou. "We are now in the process of getting some suspects in and speaking with them and trying to further this case."

"It's just getting worse and worse," said Wilson. "It's the same ones out on the street. They riding by everyday after they are committing these crimes as if nothing has happened. Justice needs to be served with them. They need to get off the streets."
