Shots fired into City Heights apartment hits bed of sleeping kids

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Police say a domestic argument between two people, possibly a man and his girlfriend, ended with gunfire Thursday and bullets flew into an innocent family's apartment with three children inside. 

David Terry, 32, was arrested after allegedly firing the gunshot that shattered a sliding glass door before flattening an air mattress inside an apartment on Home Avenue near 47th Street shortly before 2:30 a.m., according to San Diego police Officer Frank Cali.

San Diego Police found the suspect with a woman in a white Chevy Suburban that was parked about 20 feet from the apartment. Police responded so quickly they were able to find Terry sitting in the Chevy. 

Terry, who had a warrant out for his arrest, is now expected to face an additional charge of shooting at an inhabited dwelling, according to police and jail records.

Nichelle Ealy says her daughter was sleeping on an air mattress when a bullet pierced it and is so grateful they're not hurt. 

"My daughter could've been dead right now, this could've been a totally different situation," she said.

Ealy says she's a nurse who is saving money to buy a house. She says they will be moving away immediately and staying with family and friends.
