In a report filed with the Wilkes Sheriff’s Department on Sunday, a resident on the Yellow Banks Road reported that a man came to her house looking for her husband who was not at home. The man got mad but left the area. He then returned a short time later and shot at the house 3 times from his car. The woman was in the house when the shots were fired, but she was not injured. Sheriff’s Deputies only have the first name of the shooter along with his description. Charges are pending for shooting into an occupied dwelling.
