On Monday, November 30, about 7:00 p.m. Marshall County Police were dispatched to a residence on Timber Lane, just off 11th Road when the home owner reporting that a bullet had struck the house, went through the outer most wall and came to rest inside the home on the living room floor.
After an investigation was completed it is believed that the round was not intentionally fired at the home, but that the round was from a stray bullet from an unknown location to the east of the residence, likely due to careless handling of a firearm.
No injuries were reported in this incident but the Marshall County Police would like to remind all citizens of Marshall County to always practice safe and responsible gun ownership. When shooting please make sure it is into a proper back stop, and to never fire up into the air as those bullets can still be lethal when they return back to the ground.
Listeners and readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
