Mishawaka Family demanding answers after shooting sends relative to the hospital
"I'm scared because I don't like that happening around the house," said Alayaih Hopson, who lives down the street from where the shooting happened.
Hopson said this shooting along with the Central Park double shooting that killed a teenager have left her feeling uneasy about where she lives. Gonzales's family said at first, they did not even know what was going on.
"Next thing you know, we heard 'pow,' and I screamed 'get down,'" Billie Chipps, Gonzales's daughter-in-law said. "We heard two more shots and didn't realize my mother-in-law was shot in the back of the head."
Police said the shooting was a drive-by, but Chipps and her family said they think the shooter walked up to the house and opened fire. Police have not released any suspect information or suspect vehicle information which has led the family to demand answers.
"We have not got to speak to her (Gonzales)," Chipps said. "We don't even know what's going on."
Alayaih Hopson said she does not know the family well, but had a message for them.
"I'm sorry the people responsible were stupid enough to shoot up someone's house," she said.
Meanwhile, the Chipps is asking the community to do its part.
"Only thing I'm asking is anybody who knows anything, please come forward," Chipps said. "I can't do this. "
The Mishawaka Police Department was not available for comment on this story. They do not yet have a suspect in custody, but as of its latest press release, Gonzales is alive, stable and recovering at the hospital.
