NIAGARA FALLS – An online argument apparently led to windows being shot out at a South Avenue home Saturday afternoon, city police said.
The homeowner told police that she had been involved in an argument with another woman on Facebook and that afterward the woman started sending her threatening messages, including threats to get her boyfriend and “shoot up” the victim’s house.
Shortly after noon Saturday, the victim told police that she heard a vehicle outside her home, then heard three small “pops” before noticing that the front windows of her home had been damaged. She told police that her infant son was nearby at the time, but was not injured.
Police said it appeared that a BB gun was used. The victim told police that she saw the suspect and her boyfriend drive away from the scene after the shooting. Police are continuing to investigate.
