FESTUS, Mo. (KMOV.com) - An investigation is underway after someone fired shots into a Festus home early Tuesday morning.

Police said the drive-by happened along Scenic Drive around 2 a.m. Adrian Temperato said she and her husband were sleeping, when shots were fired into their home. Responding officers said they discovered four gunshot holes in the front windows. 

Although the homeowners were unharmed, Temperato said the situation is still unnerving.

"It was close, it was scary definitely," said Temperato. "Makes you think twice about locking up and everything."

Detectives said they hope to obtain fingerprints or DNA from recovered shell casings to trace the shooter.

It is unknown whether the home was targeted or if the incident was a random act of violence.

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call Festus police.
