BURLINGTON, N.C. -- Police in Burlington are asking for the public's help finding the person who shot into a woman's home Tuesday night.

It happened in the 900 block of Rainey Street at 10:16 p.m.

Burlington police said multiple small-caliber rounds were discharged near the home.

A mother and her five children were in the home at the time of the shooting, according to Lt. Chris Gaddis.

"It's not something that occurs every day, so luckily for us it doesn't, but it does alarm us that potentially there's someone out in the community that is firing a weapon," Gaddis said.

Fortunately, no one was injured.

Police don't have a description of the suspect at this time but said they believe there was a witness walking in the area at the time.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Burlington Police Department at (336) 229-3503 or Burlington/Alamance Crimestoppers at (336) 229-7100.
