ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A man got out and fired into the home.

One of the bullets went through the entire house and was found on the front porch.

Parked cars were also shot up.

Neighbors said they're frightened for their children. 

"Bullets can go anywhere and hit anybody. So I mean I feel like they need to do something about this. Need to do something about it now.  Because this is the third time. Next time it might be somebody's life," said Thomas Randell.
