BURLINGTON, N.C. -- Police said a family was woken by the sound of several gunshots fired at their home Saturday morning in Burlington.

 Officers said 20-year-old Tiffany Neal, her 18-year-old brother and their 8-year-old cousin were sleeping at 909 E. Morehead Street at the time of the shooting around 2 a.m.

"I dozed off and then all of a sudden I heard four shots go off,” said Tiffany Neal.

No injuries were reported. Officers said one of the gunshots hit the home’s mailbox and a couple more shattered glass on the front door.

Tiffany Neal said she does not know who would target her family or if her home was simply hit by mistake.

“Whoever they were trying to get, they put my family at danger and that's not cool,” she said.

There was no description available of the suspect or suspects, but investigators said they believe the shooter was armed with a 9mm handgun.

Officers said the shooter left in an unknown vehicle last seen on Morehead Street headed toward Maple Avenue around 2 a.m. Saturday.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with any information can call the Burlington Police Department at (336) 229-3500 or Crime Stoppers at (336) 229-7100.
