Person of Interest wanted in shootings of 84-year-old woman's home

- Take a good look at the man in this surveillance picture. Detroit police are calling him a "person of interest" in recent shootings. 

An 84-year-old woman living on Clairmount has had her house shot at several times this year. The motive -- unknown right now. 
    
But Detroit police are working hard to put the gunman behind bars.

"They have been diligent working this case, unfortunately not a lot of information," said Detroit Police Chief James Craig. "We do have a person of interest that we want to talk to."

The most recent shooting is the fourth one in six months, when the suspect fired into her home around 2:30 a.m. Monday.

"It's terrifying but it is what it is, I can't do anything about it," the woman said. "I don't know why he keeps coming this way."

The first time was in June, then it happened twice in July. Detroit police say it's the same suspect, who has fired hundreds of rounds into the house and nobody knows who he is or why he's doing it.

"Well you hit the floor and you get to your phone - everybody knows that," she said. "I called 911 and reported that someone was shooting at my house again."

The victim says she's not even angry at the gunman, she just wants him off the streets, especially her street.

"I live each day by day. I get up in the morning and I thank the Lord for the day," she said. "I don't live in fear. I have faith in the Lord and when you have faith in the Lord you see this man has come several times and he hasn't injured me yet. ...Just let him get some help because that's what he needs... He needs some help."
