Anna Prokhorska is shaken to her core a day after her street was a crime scene involving a quadruple murder.

"I went up to the window and saw a car driving off and dropped to the ground hoping nothing would hit me," she recalled.

She remembers hearing loud gunfire, only to then walk outside to a bullet-riddled SUV near her front yard. 

"The car that was shot had like 10 to 12 bullet holes," she said.

No further details have been released as police continue their investigation.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call 817-392-4341 or the Crime Stoppers hotline at 817-469-8477.
