“I was so scared. Everybody was so scared. We wouldn’t turn the light on, and I’m like, ‘Boy these people are crazy,’” she said.

Fulton County police were out Sunday collecting shell casings.

Channel 2’s Matt Johnson went to Shirley’s home and she showed him where the bullets hit the wall and pierced her china cabinet.

Shirley said none of the four people home at the time were hurt by the gunfire.

“Anybody could get killed and I consider myself lucky,” she said.

Shirley said she wants people to think twice before recklessly firing their guns.

“Be careful. You never know. Innocent people will get caught in the craziness,” she said.

Fulton County police said the search for whoever pulled the trigger is ongoing.

Police warn celebratory gunfire can be a misdemeanor offense and carry a $1,000 fine.
