ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A South Albany woman is asking the community to help police find the people who fired several shots at her home and threw a molotov cocktail at it.

About 4:15 Monday morning Sonya Dawson heard at least five shots outside her West Lincoln Avenue home and heard something hit the walls.

There were 7 people inside the home, including two young children.

The house did not catch fire.

No one was injured, but a car in the front yard was hit by several shots.

Dawson asked us not to show her face but asked her neighbors for help.

"This is the second time.," said Dawson. " It's got to be stopped. If anybody know anything, I would like for them to go to the police station and help us out. Because this is very dangerous."

Dawson said she thinks someone wants to run her out of the neighborhood, but told us she will not go. She is asking neighbors to give police information about this attack on her home.

Call CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
