SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Spartanburg woman is speaking out after she says police didn't speak to her after a shots fired call was made Saturday night.

Helen Foster says four bullets hit her home located on Overbrook Circle in Spartanburg. One of those bullets went through the bedroom window and another went through the front window of the home.

"Something like this drive-by shooting, they need to come out cause I told them there's a drive-by shooting over here," said Foster.

Foster said she and her 10-year-old granddaughter were home at the time watching TV when she heard about 3 to 4 gunshots around 8 p.m., per the incident report. She said she heard another 3 to 4 gunshots around 12:45 a.m.

Dispatch confirmed they did received a call of shots fired in that area around 8:30 p.m. They said several other calls came in about four hours later.

Spartanburg Police said they did respond, but there was a miscommunication between the telecommunicator and the officer. They said several calls came in and police were dispatched to the area, but they were not aware of the victim wanting to speak to an officer about bullets hitting her home.

Wanda Robinson, Foster’s daughter, said the incident could have ended differently.

"I could be standing here and I could be talking about a death or even two lives that could have been lost during that incident"

Police said they spotted a vehicle they thought may have been the suspect and pulled it over, but no arrests have been made.

No injuries were reported.
