(KSL News) Two men broke into a Salt Lake County apartment this weekend and fired a gun several times before running away.

At 9 a.m. Sunday, the two men kicked in a door at Driftwood Apartments at 3900 S. 700 West and confronted the victim. The gunmen fired 12 to 14 shots. No one was hurt.

However, several of the bullets went through a wall, peppering the adjoining apartment with gunshot holes and just missing a sleeping baby's crib.

Joey Armijo said, "I was just rocking my kid to bed to put him to sleep at about 8:30 in the morning. I had laid him down in his bed maybe 10 minutes later, and I was lying in my bed. I heard gunshots going off next door, and I heard gunshots going through my bedroom."

The Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office is still looking for the two gunmen.

They do not believe the apartment was chosen at random.
