HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Huntsville police said a bullet hit a man's residence Sunday night and made it all the way to a closet.

The victim told police he heard several gunshots from the street in front of his home on the 6000 block of Geronimo Circle around 10:10 p.m. Police said one of the shots went through several walls and ended up in a closet inside the residence.

Resident James Moore said the bullet came within feet of striking his wife as she was about to go sleep.

"I heard the shooting; I heard the 'psssh,'" said Moore. "I called 911 and got up and was looking for the bullet, and found where it came through this wall, and came through the closet."

Moore said he's not sure why someone would shoot into his house.

Neighbors told police they saw several young males running from the area after the gunshots were heard. Moore and his neighbors said the gunman ran onto Moore's property, fired a shot at his neighbor's house, but hit his instead.

No injuries were reported and no arrests have been made. The investigation is ongoing; if you have information about the incident, you are asked to call the Huntsville Police Department.
