Police Investigate Drive-By Shooting

A southern Kentucky man wants to know who shot up his home with him inside.

The drive by shooting happened at a mobile home near Corbin in Whitley County.

Gilbert Flores was sitting on his couch watching TV Friday night when he says it sounded like someone was throwing rocks at his trailer.

“When I walked to the front door, I noticed a truck was shooting down the driveway, so I walked outside, and when I walked outside, I noticed bullet holes in the window,” said Flores.

Flores says 10 bullets penetrated his home, and several of them came dangerously close to him. But the experience has him at a loss for words.

“To tell you the truth, I don't know. I've never been shot at before,” said Flores.

Even his valuables were spared much damage, including his brand new HDTV that he says isn't paid for yet.

“Luckily it didn't too much damage, (bullets) hit a few speakers, went through a few walls, tore a window up but it's a renter's trailer so I feel more bad for the landlord than myself,” said Flores.

Police are continuing their investigation. No arrests have been made. Flores says he doesn't know anyone who would want to hurt him.

“No ideas, I don't have any enemies. I don't bother no one. I stay to myself. Quiet kind of person,” he said.

But he's speaking out about his brush with danger, in hopes someone know who knows who did it will come forward.

“It’s kind of a small town, know what I mean? People talk,” he said.
