Family Survives Drive-by Shooting

16:25 |

Robert Turner feels blessed to be alive.  He says one bullet missed him about an inch.  "It happened real fast," said Turner, who was watching TV in his living room when he heard gun shots.  "It was a pow-pow-pow-pow!  And I rolled and screamed because I thought I was shot." Luckily, Turner wasn't hit. He says Thursday night, someone pulled up next to his mailbox and shot six bullets at his house on Cleveland Avenue in Des Moines. One went through his white picket fence and four others straight into his home. Police were unable to find the sixth. He says if he had not been getting up to check on food in the kitchen, one bullet would have hit him in the head. Turners' house was one of three shot up.  The others were at 1800 12th street and the 1300 block of 11th. Turner says while he stayed on the floor, his wife crawled out into the living room. The two then hurried to the only other room that faces the street, their eight year old daughter's bedroom. He described how her daughter was laying in bed only a few feet from where one of the bullets came into the house.  But she, along with Turner and his wife, are okay. He says in the past they have heard gun shots in their neighborhood, but have never heard or experienced anything like this. "This is me and the Lord's home," he said.  "And this is where he put me and when he wants me to move he'll tell me.  That's when I'll move.  But no one's gonna run me out of my home." Turner says he's been told he was not the target and that this was a case of mistaken identity. Police have arrested two people in connection to the drive-by shootings: 21-year-old Sergio Gonzales and a 15-year-old. Police say there may be more arrests.
