SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The door is riddled with bullet holes and the glass from windows littered the floor.

"It wasn't a dream, it really did happen. I really could be dead," a woman said as she held back tears.

The woman who lived through the real-life shooting drama said the gunshots shattered her nerves so much, she didn't want to be identified.

"I could just see the feathers, the pillow stuffing shooting across and all the smoke," she said.

She lives at the Carriage House Condominiums in Spartanburg and said she was on the phone when she moved from a couch near a window  to another chair around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. She said a few seconds later, she heard two loud pops.

"When I realized they were gunshots, I hit the floor on my back. And then all of a sudden, it started rapidly, just like a machine gun, they just kept coming," she said.

When she got down the hall, she said she called 911.

"I just slid, but I was just afraid they were going to shoot their way through and come in and kill me," she said.

She said police with Spartanburg Public Safety got to the home quickly, but her house looked like a war zone.

Bullets hit her ceiling, a headboard to her bed and even put a hole in her dining room table.

"Any one of the bullets, the officer said it was over 43 shots, it wouldn't have taken but one," she said.

Several hours later, investigators said a similar shooting took place at The Bluffs apartment complex. They said someone inside apartment J2 said gunshots woke her from her sleep.

Police believe the shootings are related. However, the woman who lives at the Carriage House Condominiums said she believes the shooters targeted the wrong house.
