Bullets Rip Through Pompano Beach Home With Kids Inside

A Pompano Beach home was riddled with bullets while children were inside playing video games.

The shooting happened at two units at a small complex in the 1600 block of Northwest 14th Court around 7:30 p.m. Thursday. Witnesses said at least 10 shots were fired into the units, going through windows and hitting a refrigerator and other household items.

In one of the units, a father and his three children were inside. They hid under a bed and in closets throughout the shooting. A 59-year-old woman and her adult son were in the other unit.

"My 8-year-old, he was the one who won the game. He stood up and was like, you know celebrating and saying ‘Yay! I won, I won.' But as soon as he sat down a bullet came through the window," said mother Mirland Moneland, who wasn't home at the time of the shooting.

No one was injured in the shooting, which is being investigated by the Broward Sheriff's Office.
