Multiple homes hit with bullets in Portsmouth neighborhood


PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Residents in one Portsmouth neighborhood say their homes were hit by bullets on Sunday. 

Portsmouth Police told one of the residents on Morgate Lane the bullets had come from behind their home. Two other homes were also hit. 

Destini Johnson, one of the residents, says she’s already dealing with a lot in her life right now and this incident has made her uncomfortable in her own home.

“My brother died, so honestly I think about that at night and now I’ll have to think about what if another bullet comes through the wall again while I’m sleeping or if I’m just in here getting ready for work or something,” said Johnson. 

Johnson says she was sitting on her porch when she heard a gunshot and her mother was the one to notice that it had hit her home. 

Police are continuing to investigate. Stay on for updates.
