A drive-by shooting by a carload of teenagers Wednesday night has left a family in north Perry shaken and scared.

The victim of the shooting said she and her son were shoveling snow outside their house when a four-door passenger car passed the house, and one or more occupants in the vehicle shot at her house with a pellet or BB gun.

The car was described as a silver or gray Chevy Cavalier or Honda Civic with a blue hood.

The victim reported the incident to the Perry Police Department at 6:12 p.m. Officers responded and “and took pictures and removed the BBs from the window panes and ledges,” the victim said.

The woman said neither she nor her teenage son recognized the vehicle or its occupants.

“They couldn’t have been more than 15 to 16 years of age,” she said, “at least from what I saw of them. The guns looked real. They didn’t look like BB guns but sounded like soft pellet guns at first.”

There were no injuries in the shooting, but the rounds broke windows and dented siding on the house.

“We believe it was just random teenagers,” the victim said. “Both my son and I were outside when they opened fire on the house. I heard them say ‘Go! Go! She’s outside.’ That was after they shot. They didn’t realize I was standing outside.”

The incident is under investigation, according to a Perry Police Department spokesperson. will update this story as information becomes available.
