Three shootings over the last two months have left a Winnipeg family traumatized.

"Ruth" – whose real name is being concealed to protect her identity – told 680 CJOB her Weston-area home has been repeatedly torn up by bullets, and she's not sure why.

She said the shootings have caused about $10,000 of damage, although no one has been injured yet. The siding, storm door, inside door and multiple windows in the house were all damaged by gunshots.

Not surprisingly, everyone who lives in the house is on edge, especially Ruth's eight-year-old grandson, who was sleeping over during one of the incidents.

Calgary meth user chuckled in front of officer after fatally hitting teenager: Crown

  Calgary meth user chuckled in front of officer after fatally hitting teenager: Crown A Calgary man who was driving high on meth in a stolen truck chuckled in front of an RCMP officer when the cop told him he had killed a teenager 13 hours earlier in a hit and run north of Winnipeg, a Crown attorney told court Wednesday. Crown attorney Manoja Moorthy wants Justin Joseph Little to serve a seven-year sentence for the 2018 hit and run that left St. Andrews teenager Ben Harris dead and the 15-year-old's friend injured. The sentence includes time for crimes committed before the crash.With credit for time already served, Little would spend just under five years behind bars if Judge Sid Lerner accepts Moorthy's recommendation.

A mother, 41, gave birth to twins nearly two months apart, meaning they were born into two different calendar years. The woman gave birth to her first baby prematurely at seven months , and doctors expected the second twin to come shortly afterwards.

Toronto police have released shocking new surveillance footage showing three separate unsolved shooting incidents and are asking the public to call with any tips. Kamil Karamali reports.

"The big thing is my grandson – he could have been killed. The pellets went right into my hallway. He's traumatized."

"I'm not scared to be in the house, but I'm scared to hear that (gunshot) noise again," Ruth said.

Ruth said as a result of the incidents, she's also run into insurance trouble.

"My insurance will cover it, but they've also informed me they won't be renewing with me because of the two claims and the nature of the claims."

She said police told her they suspect her adult son, who lives with her, may be the target.

While she admits her son was involved with some 'questionable' people, Ruth said his involvement in that kind of behaviour was over 15 years ago.

In January, Winnipeg police said investigators with the Major Crimes Unit believe the shootings are related, and may have gang connections.

A Winnipeg police spokesperson told 680 CJOB on Friday that it's very rare for such shootings to be random, although it is possible this could be a case of mistaken identity.

In addition to repairing the damage caused by the incidents, Ruth said the family has increased security measures out of fear the shootings aren't over.

"We've put up three cameras and we leave all our lights on outside so that the yard is lit up. My son gets a note on his phone if a car drives by... it's just awful."
