HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Children in Hartford were watching television Tuesday night in their bedroom when bullets started flying through the window.

It happened at an apartment on Capitol Avenue.

"I said ‘get down.’ I started screaming ‘get down’," said Sasha Rosa, whose children were just about to go to bed when shots were fired through a bedroom window.

On Wednesday, a bullet hole was seen in the window, the wall, and the curtain, and there was shattered glass on the windowsill of a child’s bedroom.

Thankfully no injuries were reported.

"It sounded like firecrackers. That's what it sounded like,” Rosa said.

The mother of four said it happened at about 8 p.m. on Tuesday, while her 12, 9 and 8-year-old children were watching TV.

Hartford police immediately responded and said the family in the apartment was not the intended target and had nothing to do with it.

They said the shots were fired by a legal permit holder and were in self defense.

While none of the children were injured, Rosa said the fear of what could have happened has her taking some extra precautions.

"Oh, we're all sleeping in the living room. I'm not allowing my kids to be in the room. Not anymore. Not after this,” Rosa said.

Hartford police said they are investigating the shooting.

Police arrested 24-year-old Hector Gonzalez, however it is unknown if he fired the shots into the apartment or if he was connected to the shooting in another way.

Detectives recovered two guns from the incident.
