Some tense moments for one Corpus Christi homeowner Saturday, as she thought someone was shooting a gun at her home. Turns out no gun-shots were fired, but someone did open fire from a slingshot.

It happened just before 4 p.m. Saturday on the 1000 block of Delta Drive. Investigators tell 3 News at least 2 rocks were fired into the home, from a passing car. One broke a bay window.

Luckily no one was injured.

Witnesses say 4 suspects then drove away in a light blue 4 door car, possibly a Chrysler.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crimestoppers at 888-TIPS.

I just don't understand why some people want to be plain ole mean like that.
Yea Smitty it might be stuff like this that will get slingshots restricted then we will drive us underground.

i deffinitly agree, slingshots will get banned because of dumb kids like that. Sometimes i wonder if people think before they do stupid things like that.
Evidently not, it's a real shame...
"Idiots continue to do idiotic at 11" Victims suffer and law abiding citizens have their harmless pastimes taken away while the "IDIOTS" continue to do what they please!!!
Our politicians need to stop with the "knee jerk reactions" and get to the root of the problems. We have all seen this over and over through the years. When will the madness stop????
RANT over..... for now...

A car can be a lethal weapon,also baseball bats,heavy pots and pans and the list goes on. They have to prosecute the criminals not ban everything that can be used as a weapon.Does that make sense?The stupid politicians don't understand that.
Yup, unfortunately that's exactly what they're doing over here, have you seen the amount of hoops you have to jump through just to own a .22 rimfire these days?! It's insane. They're even making 'Anti-Stab' knives now. They need to stop making these 'knee-jerk' reactions and actually look at the underlying problems for once!
