A woman's windshield was hit by a bullet while she was driving Tuesday, and a nearby home was also hit. It's the latest in a string of bullets hitting buildings.

Madison Police said it happened on Green Avenue at 2:24 p.m.

They say the woman's car and a nearby home were both hit. They recovered casings from the roadway and witnesses say the shooting appeared to be from two cars driving through the area.

They don't believe this was a targeted incident.

It's the sixth incident in less than three weeks.

We first told you about Margaret Kelly's home being hit at the end of October. She was sleeping inside when a bullet went through one of her walls.

Now, with five more incidents like hers, she's worried it's becoming too normal.

"I think people are getting almost numb to that experience because we're hearing about it every other day, and we expect it which is actually pretty disconcerting when you think people are so used to it," said Kelly.

"This is a nice neighborhood its a real shame that people have to come here and cause that kind of trouble because nothing like that has ever happened before at least not to this home," she continued.

While there have been reports of damage to property, no one has been hurt.
