JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Just hours after a murder on the Northside, a house is shot up in the same area.
Lani Ruffolo woke up to find three bullets in her home. One of them went right over her sleeping son. She's a mother who says she never gets a full night's sleep and jumps at every little noise, wondering if someone is targeting her home.
"We've hit the deck numerous times, but never had bullets hit the house," said Ruffolo.
Around 4 a.m. Sunday, Ruffolo woke up to find bullets flying through her window. Her son was sleeping in the room where two bullets hit.
"It's one thing to deal with a situation like this, but don't get in the way of a mother who loves her son, or a mother who protects her child," said Ruffolo.
She's lived in this neighborhood for seven years and has seen her fair share of crime. Every night she listens for people walking around, talking, knowing it could bring trouble. She barely ever sleeps and is always looking out her windows. She's mad at herself for not hearing someone outside her home that morning.
"I didn't hear the person. I didn't hear or see anyone standing on the corner by the hydrant," said Ruffolo.
So far police haven't arrested anyone.
Ruffolo tells Action News she's hoping to set up a neighborhood watch group through her church here to make this area safer.
