Stray bullet barely misses woman in bed

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A stray bullet that traveled through a bedroom wall early Monday nearly hit a Jonesboro woman in bed.

According to an incident report, the shooting happened in the 3000-block of Meador Road just after midnight.

The woman, who did not want her name mentioned, was lying in bed while talking on the phone.

"I heard a pop," the woman said.

The woman said the bullet came through her bedroom wall just inches from her head.

She got up and noticed the bullet went through multiple pieces of clothing, leaving holes in all of them.

She recalls everything "happening so quickly."

"It vibrated real hard," the woman said. "My ears hurt when it popped.  I turned the lights on; that's when I knew."

According to the report, police found a .40 or .45 caliber round in the closet.

Police said the case is not under investigation because they do not know who did it or where the bullet came from.

Paul Holmes, public information specialist for the Jonesboro Police Department, said the shooting could have been accidental.

If anyone has information, they are urged to call Jonesboro police or Crimestoppers at 935-STOP (7867).
