Georgia Home ‘Sprayed’ With Bullets, Almost Killing Sleeping Baby And Young Child

On Friday morning, a home in Georgia’s DeKalb county was “sprayed” with bullets, almost killing two young children.

The mother of the children, Radiah Dacus, told Fox 5 Atlanta that she was asleep when she was woken up by gunfire just before 4 a.m. Friday at her home on Winding Grove Dr.

One of the bullets struck just inches from her 2-year-old son’s crib, and another struck just above her 8-year-old daughter’s bed.

“If he would’ve stood up that would’ve been him,” Dacus said. “That bullet could’ve shot my baby.”

After the gunfire woke up her kids, they crawled into her room and ducked for cover, Dacus said. 

“I didn’t want to turn the lights on in the house, so then I took my camera from my phone and just looked around the room,” she said.

After the incident, more than a dozen bullet holes could be seen in the house. Dacus’ house reportedly appeared to be the only one targeted.

DeKalb County Police said they are investigating, but they don’t yet have any information on the suspects or a motive. 

“I don’t know what kind of people would do this type of thing,” Dacus said. “We’re homebodies, we work, come home.”

Dacus said she has since installed security cameras in her home, but she still doesn’t feel safe. 

“I just want justice for it. I got these babies in here. I’m trying to live a long life for them,” she said.
