Police searching for person who shot up Litchfield Park home while people were inside

- Police are trying to track down a person, in connection with a shooting incident at a home in Litchfield Park.

According to police, a mother and her two young children were inside, when the incident happened around 5:00 a.m. Thursday, in a neighborhood near Dysart and Camelback.

The incident began, hours before the school day began at the nearby Wigwam Creek Middle School. The school was not affected in any way.

At least fifteen bullet tore through the walls and drilled through the door, at speeds of hundreds of miles per hour, and then bounced crazily around the house. All that happened, while a woman and her two little kids were in bed.

"Considering the amount of shots and rounds penetrated, very fortunate nobody was killed in this home," said Sgt. Joaquin Wnriquez with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

A small army of MCSO investigators descended on the house, measuring, analyzing, calculating, and stepping carefully around the two little bicycles in the garage, looking for clues.

So far, officials say they have no suspects. Meanwhile, neighbors are worried.

"If something happens like that it might happen anytime," said Roman Woronowicz. "In Arizona, probably everybody has a gun, that might happen anytime. That is what concerns me. Most kids are playing here."

Anyone with information should contact MCSO.
