Dumfries home rattled by gunfire

More shots fired at homes in Prince William County

DUMFRIES, VA (WUSA9) - A Prince William County man wants to know who shot two bullets at his home over Labor Day weekend.

According to Prince William County Police, about 17 houses have been shot in the county since January.

Carl Wilson says his home, on Vineland Place in Dumfries, was hit early Sunday morning as he and his wife were asleep. Upon further review, Wilson learned his home had been struck two times, while his neighbor's had been struck once.

“Before I went to church," he said. "I found that there was an actual bullet hole in the window, a gouge in the ceiling and a hole in the wall.”

Police say they do not have a suspect in the case. However, they do have a report of a suspicious car being in the area around the time of the shooting.

A Prince William County Police spokesperson added that the county's house shootings do not appear to be related.
