PASCO, Wash. – Police say a bullet fell through the roof of a mobile home and landed in a child’s bedroom in Pasco on Tuesday night.

The Pasco Police Department investigated the incident in the 900 block of North Elm Avenue.  They said someone’s New Year’s Eve celebration bullet came down through the roof and landed on a blanket near a bassinet in the child’s bedroom.

Thankfully, no one was injured.

“The bullets don’t come back down at the same speed that they left the barrel, but a streamlined piece of metal at terminal velocity can still penetrate plywood, penetrate some sheet metal, and potentially cause injury. Do not shoot into the air,” police wrote on Facebook.
