BANGOR – Police responded to shot-out windows at two different homes Tuesday night. They said it appeared someone shot at the homes with a BB gun.
No one was hurt, but one woman was scared off of her couch in her Buck Street home.
“Right afterwards I heard a really loud rumble and the whole wall shook,” Amy Martin said remembering the moment of impact. “I can only assume it was gas escaping from the window from the pressure.”
Martin said she didn’t see anyone when she ran outside. But when she came back she found what she called a perfectly round hole in the top of her living room window.
“My immediate reaction was mad. I went right outside to see what was going on,” said Martin.
Bangor Police Sergeant Wade Betters said police got a call around 8:40 p.m. on Tuesday from Amy Martin.
Then 15 minutes later, police got another call about a hole through a window — this time from a home on Fifteenth Street.
Sergeant Betters said two young men in a gold car were seen taking off from that area. Police are looking for those two men.
Martin said she’s offering a $1,000 reward for anyone with information that can lead to finding the culprits.
“It’s going to cost me a lot more than $1,000 to fix this window and I think these kids need to be held accountable for their actions. This could’ve gone very wrong.”
Martin was the only one home at the time. But she said her pets like to sit near the home’s front window, and they could’ve been hurt.
“I know kids talk. People like to brag about things,” said Martin. “But this isn’t something to brag about, this isn’t something to be proud of. People really could’ve gotten hurt.”
Bangor Police asked the public for help. They want to find the culprits so they can have those responsible pay to replace the windows.
