Bullets fly into neighbors home after teen shot in Greenbelt

May Sun lives next door to the victim. Her house was hit by a number of the bullets. She showed WUSA9 where the bullets came through her home.

GREENBELT, Md. — Searches are underway for whoever shot a 16-year-old boy in Greenbelt, Maryland on Thanksgiving day.

Greenbelt Police tell WUSA9, they were called to the intersection of Matthew Street and Ora Glenn Drive around 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving, but say the 16-year-old who was shot, had already been taken to the hospital by family members.

"As you can see I'm still shaking, I feel like crying" said May Sun. 

Sun lives next door to the victim and her house was hit by a number of the bullets. She showed WUSA9 where the bullets came through her garage, her bedroom and her bathroom.

"The bullet came through that way and broke the ceramic wall. If I were taking a shower here I would definitely be shot" said Sun.

She says she was laying down on her bed, when all of a sudden "I hear a series of big sounds and I feel the house shake" she said.

Sun says she ran outside and saw her neighbor outside as well. "She was shouting did anyone see my son?" said Sun.

Sun tells WUSA9 just moments later, she saw a teenager walking down the street and the woman asked him if he was hurt or bleeding.

Greenbelt Police say the teen's injuries were not life-threatening.

Sun says she moved to the neighborhood in the 80s and that she's never heard or seen anything like this. She told WUSA9 she's scared it's going to happen again, but really doesn't want to move out of her home.

"It's not easy for us senior people to move away, but I'm thinking what should I do next. I feel that my life is in danger" said Sun.

Police tell us they are still searching for whoever fired the shots. They're asking anyone who might have seen anything or who has surveillance footage to contact them at at 301-474-7200 or greenbeltpd@greenbeltmd.gov.
