NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - A Norfolk woman says someone shot at her house 18 times.
Carol Merrill says she believes it was retaliation for a complaint she made to police. Merrill says she called police for days regarding a noise complaint. She says officers showed up but says the noise continued after they left.
"They [police] act like I'm a nuisance. I'm calling you because there is a real fear, a real concern here," Merrill told WAVY.com.
Monday, Carroll approached the group making the noise and she says that's when her fear became real.
"The young man had his gun out to the side and said 'ma'am, where you live at? Ma'am, where you live at'?"
Five minutes later Merrill says the group was shooting into her house.
"We have no tolerance for nonsense, no tolerance to allow blight and neglect from individuals to tear down what we're building," said Terrance Simmons, Civic League President for Old Huntersville.
Simmons says the Civic League has had many meetings with police and have been told to have open communication about problems they see, big or small.
The Norfolk Police Department says it has dedicated units for the Old Huntersville neighborhood. A spokesperson told WAVY.com supervisors will be increasing their presence there.
There have been no arrests in connection with the shooting at Carol's home, but police say they have strong leads.
