BROKEN ARROW, Okla. -  Shots rang out in a quiet Broken Arrow neighborhood early Sunday morning which has left a family and neighborhood on edge Sunday night.

FOX23 spoke to the victims who tell us, they've been mistaken for someone else.

FOX23 went to the home near 71st and 129th East avenues to talk with the homeowner and uncover more details about what happened. 

The people who live in this neighborhood told FOX23 it’s a family friendly and quiet place.

That peacefulness was interrupted last night when someone fired a shot gun through the windows of a BA residents home.

"It sounded like a bomb went off in the house. I mean, literally it was that loud," Raymond Wilson.

That loud noise was the sound of a shot gun being fired into Wilson's home.

"Whoever did it, shot point blank at the window," Wilson said.

The shooter fired not one, but two shotgun shells into Wilson’s windows.

"Never in a million years would you expect this to happen," Wilson said.

The Wilson family had been asleep early Sunday morning and the shotgun shells did not injure them; however, it's easy to see where the shots fired struck a table, the wall and the refrigerator.

"This is just stuff that can be repaired and fixed and stuff but you can't repair a life," Wilson said.

Wilson also told FOX23 he and Broken Arrow police believe whoever did this targeted the wrong family.

Wilson, his wife and their 23-month-old baby moved into the home a few months ago.

"It just felt comfortable and stuff. And it's a clean, nice neighborhood, very nice neighbors," Wilson explained.

Neighbors FOX23 spoke with said before the Wilsons moved in the house was being rented.

They said the previous tenants had a history with the police.

When those tenants moved out they were hopeful the problems had left with them.

"I’m kind of really surprised and nervous, we don't have that kind of problem before all these years," said neighboring resident Chaudhary Ali.

This family hopes this is a one-time incident and has a message for the person or people who did this.

"The people that lived in this house no longer live here. This is new owners. If they have a vendetta against these people it's not us. Find them wherever they're at. Don’t come after us," said Wilson.

FOX23 spoke with Broken Arrow police and they said they are doing a thorough investigation.

Wilson said he is adding some extra lighting around his home and will be installing surveillance cameras very soon.
