‘I almost got a bullet in the head’: Madison woman’s apartment is full of bullet holes | News
MADISON (WKOW) – The Madison Police Department is investigating after a woman’s apartment was attacked by gunfire last week.
According to police, they were responding to a report of shots being fired at an apartment block on the 1900 block of Brittany Place on August 24.
They said many people said they heard multiple shots fired, but officers were unable to determine property damage or shell casings.
However, the next morning, a woman from the same complex called to report that her apartment had been damaged by apparent gunfire.
Pamela Woodward said she woke up to discover bullets had entered the house while she was sleeping in her bed.
“I mean I almost got a bullet in the head,” Woodward said.
It was a close call and some would even say she was lucky to be alive but Woodward said luck was the last thing she felt.
“The curtains were shot to pieces and I thought it was weird and then I got to a corner and I was like…”, she recalls.
Woodward said she couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw her window and everything in her path was hit by bullets.
Pointing at the broken doors and potted plants, she described the scene in which she woke up.
Earlier that night, Woodward said she went to bed early, which is something she doesn’t usually do. Getting off the couch and moving to her bed might be the reason she’s still alive.
“Shots were here and there in my furniture and in my wall and there was one that went through the couch right where I was sitting and the bullet was still in the wall,” she explained.
She said she believed the shooter was on foot but couldn’t imagine why they would have opened fire on her apartment.
“And then you think ‘god, I hope I’m not targeted’ but there’s no reason why I should be,” she added. “I have never angered anyone so badly.”
Pamela has this message for whoever fired those shots.
“Please stop, please stop,” she begged. “They have children too, they have parents too, how would they feel if their mother was shot in the door over her porch?
With her best friend Molly Sue, Woodward said they’re trying to pick up the pieces and figure out where to go from here. Meanwhile, she said she’s on the hunt for affordable housing while waiting for the door to be fixed.
Madison police are still looking for those responsible. If you have any information, you can call Madison Area Crime Stoppers at (608) -266-6014.
