BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
We are just a week from the 4th of July and police are warning everyone, don't celebrate with gunfire. One woman is truly dreading the fourth.
Not once, but twice now stray bullets have come into her home. Both times were accidents, but either way just the thought that someone may shoot off a firearm has Sylvia Kingka on edge. "Fourth of July coming up, it's like when New Years came around this year, girlfriend was hysterical," said Kingka about herself. "I'm scared to sit by a wall. I'm scared to sit with my back to the window, that's why my sofa is right here. It freaks me out."
The first time Kingka had a stray bullet nearly miss her was in 2010. She was in bed when she heard something strange. When she got up, she saw a bullet had come through her window and hit her headboard. "By the grace of God it didn't go all the way through the bed," said Kingka.
Then six months later it happened again. This time the bullet came from a neighbor's apartment. It went through two walls, a picture frame, a towel, a laundry basket and a door before landing on the floor. "I was like oh my God, another bullet hole. Are you kidding me," said Kingka.
Two very close calls; which is why she's pleading with people this 4th of July not to shoot their guns for fun. "The bullets don't have names on them. It will shoot anybody. Once it goes out, who's to say where it's going to land," said Kingka. "Every time I hear loud noises now I'm freaked out. It took the fun out of everything, the 4th of July."
Police say if you do decide to take part in celebratory gunfire and you accidently shoot someone, you will be arrested and charged with felony assault or possibly even murder if someone gets killed.
