Homeowners concerned after house shot at twice


Waterloo police are investigating two reports of shots fired at two different locations within two and a half weeks. 

On December 19th and Monday morning, shots rang out in the seven hundred block of Logan Avenue, as well as the seven hundred block of Webster Street.

Sir-Frank Nelson was in his home playing video games when he heard something he doesn't want to hear again.

"Then I just start hearing gun shots and I'm like is that real? Yeah and after the second one I like everybody get down on the ground and then after the third one it was over," said Nelson.

When Nelson looked outside he didn't see anything. He says there were about seven other people in his home at the time, but thankfully, no one was hurt.

Now after two separate shootings, his home has a handful of bullet holes in it.

"I don't know. I haven't been able to think since my brother died," said Nelson. 

Nelson says the late Dae'Quan Campbell was like a brother to him. He's not sure though if that is the reason his home has been shot at twice, but he does say the homeowner on Webster street was also Campbell's friend.

Police say they're not sure either if these two reports of shots fired are in connection with Campbell, but they are looking at everything.

"But here again I think they are just targeting those specific houses and so we would ask the neighbors if you see somebody, a suspicious in the area, a vehicle that doesn't belong to get a hold of the police department," said Captain Tim Pillack, Waterloo Police Department.
