CUMMING, Ga. - A neighbor fired gunshots that ended up across the street, nearly missing a baby and an elderly woman.

While no one was seriously injured, a man watching television suffered cuts to his head from shattered glass and shrapnel, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff's incident report.

About 4:15 p.m. Oct. 15, multiple patrol cars were dispatched to the 6000 block of Forsyth Drive in North Forsyth, off Ga. 9, after residents reported several shots fired.

One of the victims said he had the front door open and he was sitting on his couch in the living room when he heard gunshots fired. Two of the bullets hit his home.

One round penetrated the double-pane glass window of his opened door and shattered the sheet rock at the corner of his living room and kitchen.

The victim's wife said her grandmother was standing on the porch when they heard four to six shots fired. She said she tackled her grandmother while holding her baby.

She heard about six more shots after she went to help her husband.

Deputies canvassed the area and found the bullets came from a home across the street.

When deputies spoke to the homeowner, he said he fired the shots from his back deck.

John Paxton, 53, was charged with reckless conduct and criminal trespass; both are misdemeanors. He was taken to Forsyth County Detention Center.
