HERALD STAFF REPORTDecember 26, 2013 

MANATEE -- A woman was asleep along with five children at a residence in the 5900 block of 12th Street W. in Manatee County when she heard what she thought was drilling at 2 a.m. on Tuesday.

It turns out the drilling was actually gun shots entering her residence from a drive-by shooting, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies removed three bullets from her house and found one shell casing, according to a report.

None of the occupants were injured, the report adds.

No arrests have been made or leads turned up in the case, according to the report.
