JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A South Jackson family woke up to numerous shots fired into their home early Tuesday morning.

Jackson police are investigating the shooting, which happened on Ironwood Lane around 4:00 a.m. 

Bullets went through windows and the siding of the house. 

Shots were also fired into the garage and hit a vehicle parked inside.

 A relative says a husband, wife and their grandchild were in the house.

There are no reports of injury. 

Rosalyn Sylvester lives nearby and says Willow Wood has a strong neighborhood association and says they don't tolerate any violence in their community.

"It could have been my house. It could have been anyone's home out here. This is something that of course, we're not welcoming any crime, we want it taken care of.  I've already placed a call to Commander Jones at precinct one to keep us informed about what is going on. I hope they catch the people that did this," says Sylvester.

Police say a gray Nissan Maxima or Altima was spotted leaving the area after the shots were fired, but that's about all they have to go on.

If you have any information, call JPD or call Crimestoppers at 601-355-TIPS.
