RACINE — Four separate shootings on Memorial Day injured three men, according to the Racine Police Department.

The shooting victims are expected to survive.

A mother was filled with emotions after she says a stray bullet flew through her home.

She asked we not show her face or use her name but told us the bullet came through their deck where her family had just spent the day playing.

It pierced through four walls. Luckily, no one in her family was hurt.

Racine Police responded to a report of shots fired on Barker Street near Douglas Avenue shortly before 8:30 p.m. Monday. Officers said they found 24 used shell casings on the ground.

"We stayed low and away from the windows," said one woman who lives nearby. She asked to remain anonymous because of her job.

She checked on her two adult sons who were not hit.

Police say no one appeared to be struck.

"I was wondering what's going on in my neighborhood that you would have to hear this is really sad. It's really scary," said the neighbor.

Racine Police do not have anyone in custody for the gunfire on Barker Street.
