• 'I really thought I was dead': Family wakes up to bullets flying through home

    By: Justin Wilfon


    ATLANTA - It was a terrifying wake-up call for an Atlanta woman and her family when bullets were fired into their apartment building.

    Netta Favors told Channel 2’s Justin Wilfon that several of the bullets missed her by only inches, going through doors, multiple walls and even into the microwave.

    “I was scared at first. I really thought I was dead. I’m not going to lie. I really thought I was dead,” Favors said.


    Favors showed Wilfon where bullets flew into her apartment early Wednesday morning. She was asleep on the couch along with her sister and 8-year-old cousin when bullets started whizzing by them, missing them by only inches.

    “We all ran towards the bathroom because bullets were coming through the wall," Favors said.

    Neighbors later told her that two gunmen opened fire from outside the building off Landrum Drive in southwest Atlanta.

    Favors found a bullet inside the same couch where she and her family were sleeping.

    “I’m scared," she said.

    After the shooting, the gunmen drove away.

    Favors said she has no idea why they would target the building. Now, she just wants them caught.

    "Whoever came in and shot up my apartment is a coward. A coward," she said.

    The Atlanta Police Department tells us its investigation is ongoing.
