Gunman Sprays Charlotte Home with Dozens of Bullets, Injures Owner

From by Nate Stewart, November 21, 2013

Police are searching for a gunman who fired nearly 40 bullets at a man’s west Charlotte home Thursday night.

The victim was in his living room at his home on East Todd Lane when he was hit in his back and foot.

Ronnie Burris is out of the hospital and healing but is still shaken up.

There are more than 40 bullet holes on the side of his home striking feet from where Burris was sitting last night.

“It sounded like pow-pow-pow-pow,” Burris said.

Police said two suspects pulled up to Burris’ home and fired at his home shattering windows. He believes the men were using an automatic weapon.

“And then shot behind the chair that hole back there, that’s where they hit me from the bullet hole in the chair,” Burris said. “I was sitting right here.”

While Burris stayed on the sofa in the living room, his brother hid in a back room unharmed. As bullets rained down on the home, next door neighbor James Craig called 911.

“It sounded like a machine gun or something,” Craig said.

Burris’ was taken to Carolinas Medical Center Main and was released early Friday morning. With his bedroom taking the majority of the gunfire, Burris said it would have been a different ending if he was in bed.

“I would be dead right now. That bullet would have hit me right back in my head,” Burris said.

There have been no arrests in this case and the investigation is still ongoing.
