Bullet shot through family’s home

It’s not exactly the thing a family expects to find in their home on a Monday morning.

A Vernon family and the RCMP are  puzzled after a bullet ended up in the home in the 7900 block of Okanagan Landing Road.

“The owner discovered Monday morning that sometime overnight a bullet had been shot through a double-paned window on the second storey of the home, and the bullet lodged into a wall in the kitchen,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

During their investigation, police discovered from other residents in the area that they heard a shot around 2:30 a.m., but nobody reported the incident to police.

The homeowners heard nothing, and didn’t discover the bullet hole until they woke up in the morning.

The residents are not known to police and the RCMP believe the incident may have been random.

“We don’t know why this residence was hit,” said Molendyk.

Nobody was hurt in the incident.

Anybody with any information on the shooting is asked to call the Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
