A west Charlotte man is recovering Sunday after being grazed by a bullet that was shot into his house while he slept.
The house on Hiram Street in the Arbor Glen neighborhood was hit by at least five shots about 3:15 a.m. Natasha Harvell said she and her husband, whom she declined to name, were asleep when the bullets pierced their bedroom wall and whizzed over their bed.
The 40-year-old man was taken to Carolinas Medical Center but later released. Harvell said he was not seriously injured.
Most of Harvells neighbors declined to speak on camera, but one said gunfire in the neighborhood is surprising except at the house that was hit.
"I have no idea what goes on down there, and I don't know if they're a target, or if it's their friends, or what, she said, after asking WCNC not to use her name.
"There's too many cars and too many people there."
Even though most of the people who live on Hiram Street said it is mostly quiet, the neighborhood has known violence before.
In July 2008, brothers Josh Davis and Terry Long were gunned down nearby as part of an ongoing feud. Davis and Long lived in the house that was shot up early Sunday morning.
Neighbors said, however, that their mother, Andrea Long, moved a few months after her sons' murders.
