KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A house in the historic Manheim neighborhood has become a target and left the residents there living in fear.

The house has been shot up three times in the past few months and family members said they fear the next shooting will be deadly.

FOX 4's Shannon O'Brien met with the Wilson family, who said they're doing everything they can to avoid a senseless tragedy.

Glass littered the front porch of Delores Wilson's house. Those shards are the shattered remnants of her front door after it was shot out Saturday morning.

"We wake up at two o'clock in the morning and we just hear gunshots, gunshots," Wilson explained.

While no one was hit by the gunfire this said, Wilson said with each attack that this nuisance will turn tragic.

"I don't know if I'm going to get shot, or my grandbaby going to get shot, or my brother going to get shot. I don't want to wake up to fear," she said.

Wilson said she feels like a prisoner in her own home, the home her family has lived in for over fifty years.

Wilson became visibly nervous as a car drove by while she was speaking with FOX 4 News.

"Who's going to know if somebody's going to be at that corner, or somebody's going to be at that corner? Who knows what'll happen?" she said.

She said nowhere in her house is safe. The first time, she said she heard bullets hit the side of her home while was sitting at the dining room table and had to crawl to the kitchen.

Another time, shots struck near where her 14-year-old granddaughter was sleeping.

"Got bulletholes upstairs in one of the bedrooms. Sometimes I even set on the floor, like, there's a big window right there. I don't want to be hit," she said.

Wilson said she doesn't have any enemies, but her 28-year-old son does. She's afraid his feud could end her life.

"They coming here because they're thinking he stay here. He don't stay here. He do not stay here. My son do not stay here," she emphasized. "So why is the target here?"

That target is a family home.

"I don't even want nobody being at my house. I don't do nothing on holidays or nothing, because I don't want nobody to get hurt here," she said.

She's tired of living in the crossfire of a fight she's not a part of.

"I'm fed up. When is it going to stop?" she asked.

Anyone with information on who is targeting the home is urged to call the TIPS hotline at (816) 474-TIPS. That phone call may just save someone's life.
