Las Vegas valley police departments are keeping an eye on a growing trend -- more random gunfire directed at homes.
Bettina Stanfield is ill and forced to spend a lot of time in bed and that's where she was when a bullet fired at her home at random sliced through a wall and her headboard.
"I'm just grateful to be alive," she said.
13 Action News Crime and Safety Expert and retired Las Vegas police Lt. Randy Sutton says defending a home from this type of crime is next to impossible.
"Random shootings and random victims and unfortunately, you can't create a fortress out of your house," he said.
While they are random, sometimes it also just depends on the neighborhood.
