 A Waterloo family says their home was hit with gunfire, for the second time in just four months. 

Jim Day and his family were all inside their Waterloo home on Cottage Grove Avenue Sunday afternoon when seven bullets came flying in through windows and walls.  

Two young children were inside at the time.  Fortunately they were upstairs instead of in their playroom which is located in the front porch where most of the bullets hit the home.  

The shooter was spotted before getting away on a bicycle.  Day says the fact the shooter was on a bicycle, makes it personal. "The first time the guy drove by real fast. This time, he just seemed to take his time," Day said.

Police have added patrol units to the area and Jim plans on installing motion-sensor lights and even a surveillance camera to try to protect his home and family
