16-year old girl shot by stray bullet while sleeping in her home

Nakesha Berry, age 16
16-year old Nakesha Berry was sleeping in her Holts Summit home when, around 1:20 AM, three bullets struck her trailer, apparently fired several blocks away. Two of those bullets struck Nakesha in her left leg.

From the article and news video:

According to police, the girl was inside her North Summit Drive home when she was shot in the leg. The shots apparently passed through the home's wall and into the girl.
"I don't know what happened," Berry said. "It felt like a cramp, then my dad came in and pulled back the covers and there were two holes in my leg."

Bullets don't know when to stop.
