Bullet Nearly Hits Sleeping Woman

A bullet fired from the outside at an occupied house nearly struck a sleeping woman as it passed through her mattress.

Salina Police Captain Mike Sweeney says that back on November 16th, at about 3:30 in the morning an elderly woman heard what might have been a gunshot outside her home in the 2100 block of Roach. The woman did not find any damage.

On Monday, as she was changing sheets on her bed, she did find damage to her headboard and contacted police.

Sweeney says that officers determined that a bullet entered through the front of the house. The bullet traveled through a wall, through the woman’s headboard, through the mattress, and lodged in a door. The woman was sleeping in the bed at the time the bullet passed through it. She was not hurt.

Police are investigating the case.
