A Raleigh mother and her daughter survived a huge scare when someone started celebrating the New Year with gunfire.

No one was hurt, but Rosazyn Nyang was outraged because one of the bullets hit in her house just inches from her sleeping daughter.

"Then there was this noise that went like 'Boom, boom.' It scared me and woke me up," said Nyang's daughter.

"I went to mommy and said 'Mommy, there's ceiling pieces falling on me,'" said Nyang's daughter.

However, it wasn't ceiling pieces that hit the child. It was sheet rock from the third grader's wall after a bullet nearly missed her head as she slept.

"It's very scary, very scary to me," said Nyang. "My daughter's here and the situation could have been totally different. That's what really upset me."

The Raleigh Police Department's SWAT team was called out to the Ashley Place neighborhood on New Year's Eve with reports of gunfire.

To some, shooting a gun is a way of celebrating the New Year, but it's against the law and against Nyang's homeowner's association rules as well.

"I want something done. I don't know what, but I want something done and I want to find out who did it because she could have been dead and the situation could have been totally different than what it is now," said Nyang.

Nyang is counting her blessings and said whoever accidentally shot through her daughter's bedroom wall should turn themselves in.
