LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman is lucky to be alive after police say a man tried to kill her twice.  

According to the arrest report, the first incident happened during the early morning hours of April 10, in the 400 block of Boston Court near 41st and Market. Police say the victim told them that's when she noticed a car with the suspect and two other people inside parked outside her home. 

The victim told police 22-year-old Deonte Rhodes and another unidentified person got out of the car and began shooting at the home once she was inside. Police responded after ShotSpotter reported 26 shots fired, but the victim and suspects were gone.

Police say the victim was grazed in the knee by one of the numerous bullets that entered the home, and later called from another location to report the shooting.

The victim's brother and three children were inside the home when the shots were fired and "were in substantial danger of death or serious physical injury." 

The victim's car was also hit by five bullets during the shooting. 

The following day, on April 11, police say Rhodes fired several shots into the home of the victim's grandmother in the 1200 block of Constitution Drive near Manslick Road. No injuries were reported in that incident. 

Ballistics testing linked the shell casings from both shooting scenes. 

Rhodes was arrested May 15. He is facing several charges, including attempted murder, assault, criminal mischief and several counts of wanton endangerment.
