HIGH POINT, N.C. — About 25 gunshots rang out in High Point early Wednesday morning, according to police.

At 3:45 a.m., a High Point police officer heard the shots and responded.

As the officer worked to identify where the shots were fired, a resident called 911 to report that someone was shooting at their house on the 300 block of Hobson Street, police said.

Bianca Smith was inside the home at the time and said she fell to the floor after hearing gunfire.

“Every time I thought about it, and thought about it, I’ve been crying all day,” she said.

No one was injured, but Smith said based on the number of shots she heard, she thought her cousins in the next room had been hit.

“I thought they were dead,” she said. “I didn’t hear nothing, I thought I was shot. I didn’t know what was going on,” she said.

Smith said she didn’t know who shot at the home and police were unable to find a suspect or suspects.

Officials say they are canvassing the area for evidence and believe only one home was hit.

Neighbors said another home across the street was shot at just three days ago.

Records show a history of drug and weapon seizures at both homes. Police have not said if the two shootings are linked and say the investigation is ongoing.
