Stray Gunshot Goes Through Wall Of Home

At 1045, Skamania County Deputies responded to 391 Harder Road in Washougal, WA this morning after being notified of shooting noise in the area and the resident owner locating a bullet on a bedroom floor.  Deputies subsequently located a bullet hole through the bedroom wall just above the headboard of the bed.  The trajectory appears to be from a ricochet off the ground outside, through the outside wall of the residence and hitting an opposite inside bedroom wall near the ceiling.  The bullet was recovered off the floor of the bedroom.  There were no reported injuries.

“At this time we have no reason to believe that this was intentional in nature in any way”, said Undersheriff Dave Cox.  “We will be continuing with the investigation to determine a possible explanation as to why the bullet found it’s way to this residence.”

If anyone has any information on this incident, they are requested to contact the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office at 509-427-9490.
