WATERLOO (KWWL) -

 "I sit here on my chair, play games on my tablet, sit here and watch TV with my wife," says Kerry Johnson.

Had he been sitting on his favorite chair the night of April 21, a bullet would have flown right over his head.

"Ten o'clock, I get the call. And I just thought, 'oh no, not another call,' but true enough, she says the house got shot up again," he says.

Bullet holes, some old, some new, have Kerry and his wife Geneva frustrated to say the least.

Their Newton street home was shot up on April 17 too.

Geneva says she thinks her son may have been the target, and Kerry maintains their innocence. 

They want nothing to do with this.

"We don't bother anyone. This is a nice comfortable home for us. I don't hang out in the streets," says Johnson.

Just two hours after their home was attacked Tuesday, police responded to more shots fired in the 300 block of Center Street.

Waterloo's Chief of Police says his department has a lot of leads, but they can't make any arrests until there's more proof.

"If you're unwilling to give us more information, do what you can to get them to stop. If you're a family member or a friend, you need to stop them," Dan Trelka says.
