An Alief grandmother and her family are afraid to sleep in their own home after their house was sprayed with bullets in a drive-by shooting early Tuesday morning.

Nakisha Stepny showed Eyewitness News the bullet holes in the windows, walls and doors of her family's duplex in the 12000 block of White Cap Lane. She says someone fired about 10 shots around 3:30am. A car parked outside was also hit.

Two shots narrowly missed Stepny's daughter and 1-year-old grandson as they slept in their bed.

"I was thinking about the young kid when he got shot in the drive-by," said Stepny referring to Moises Jimenez, 6, who was killed in a September 25th drive-by shooting as he slept. His 11-year-old brother, Manuel Jimenez, was also shot and remains hospitalized.

Stepny immediately thought of that deadly shooting. She says the shooters have the wrong house and she doesn't want them to return.

"This is not the house you're looking for. Ain't nothing but women in this house. We just moved here. No, this is the wrong house they're shooting up," Stepny said.

"I couldn't believe it because I just moved here and all of a sudden this?" added Patricia Howard, Stepny's mother. "I don't know why. It's crazy. It's really crazy."

Sleeping in the house will be difficult. The women say their sense of security is gone and are considering moving after living there just two weeks.

"I feel like people should be able to live where they want to live and not feel like it's not safe."

Houston police recovered at least one bullet. They are investigating the shooting.
