MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

The family of a murder suspect says they're now watching and praying, after their home was shot up this morning. For fear of further retaliation, the family requested that their identities and home be hidden. Family members say, they're now afraid for their lives.

"It's real scary. Life threatening," said one family member.

Family of murder suspect Christopher Hatch say they'll be on their knees tonight after what happened early this morning.

"Some guys came and shot up my relatives house and they were in the bed sleeping at the time, didn't nobody get hit or nothing like that but still," that family member said.

Hatch was arrested and charged with murder early this week in connection with the killing of 24-year-old Samuel Anderson. Just days later, someone opened fire on the Hatch home. We counted more than 20 bullet holes throughout the house. Out of the 4 people occupying the house at the time, 3 are elderly women.

"They all old from 80 to 60. 80s, 60s, 70s and the other one in there, she bout' 34," explained the family member.

The Hatches hope this will all blow over soon.

"We just afraid for their life," the family member stressed. "Who knows, they might come back."

Family members say they're hoping police would patrol the area tonight. We reached out to Mobile Police for comment but so far, we haven't heard back.
