The owner was shocked that someone would try to harm her business, especially with young kids inside. Harris recalls using her parental instincts to protect the infants when bullets began flying into the day care.
“I looked up, and I had a 1-year-old in her high chair and bullets were still coming through the window,” the owner tells Fox 6 Milwaukee.
Harris also recalls having to protect a four-month-old baby still in her carrier seat.
“Any of my children could have lost their life. Bullets don’t have a name. Them bullets could have easily went through the wall and hit any of my children,” she tells 14 News.
One parent fears for his child’s safety after the incident.
