A shooting on Milwaukee’s north side has left a mother living in fear, and investigators are asking witnesses to come forward after her home and at least five vehicles on 65th Street and Carmen Avenue were shot Tuesday night.

This shooting leaves a major challenge for Angelica Laurant, who wants to move. Milwaukee police say this is the second time this has happened this month.

"It's ridiculous," Laurant said.

Wednesday afternoon Laurant said her family is traumatized.

"It's been crazy because they're shooting at us and we don't know why, we don't know what's going on," she said.

Tuesday night’s shooting happened around 8:30 p.m. and gunshots narrowly missed Laurant and her family while they were home.

"By the grace of God, none of us didn't get hit," Laurant said.

Milwaukee police say bullets also struck at least five other vehicles. Wednesday TODAY'S TMJ4 came across parked cars with shot out windows, damaged bumpers and tires.

"You're not caring about anybody because there are plenty of kids out here playing," she said.

Investigators say they're looking for at least two suspects. This isn't the first time Laurant's home was shot at; police say on Aug. 8 unknown shooters fired into their home. Laurant said this recent shooting was the last straw.

"We're just trying to move, we're just trying to get up out of here," Laurant said.


But she needs help being a mother of four.

"I hate that this is happening to us. I really want these people caught," she said.

For now, she's grateful everyone’s still alive but she still fears for her kids’ safety.

If you have any information about these shootings, you’re urged to contact Milwaukee police.
