Homeowner Caitlyn Smith said her family was enjoying a quiet night at home when the incident happened.

“My husband and daughter were watching TV in the living room, I was in the spare room [and] my son was in his room and suddenly [we] heard these loud cracking noises,” she said. “I thought [it] was the living room…the glass was all intact. We looked all around and saw the entry hole above the piano.”

“We are assuming [it was a] random lunatic with a gun,” she added.

Smith said her family is still coming to grips with what happened and said she is grateful her family is safe.

Police said they continue to investigate the incident.
