TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Kindergarten teacher Shari Shepherd's living room window might make her feel more like she's living on the site of a firing range these days.
A bullet hole, roughly the size of a quarter - probably more like a half-dollar, greets guests into her North Basswood Street home, in northern Vigo County.
Shepherd said the bullet entered her rear window, traveled through her kitchen only feet from where she stood, in broad daylight Saturday.
"Scared me to death! It scared me to death," Shepherd said.
Shepherd called authorities, and now the Vigo County Sheriff's Department is investigating.
"I can't really say that I'm scared because I don't feel it was a threat on my life," Shepherd admitted. "I don't feel like it was even malice, I feel it was an accident."
Shepherd did admit she thinks it's a neighbor's teenage son, who should admit responsibility and pay for her damaged windows and siding. But the neighbors she confronted, according to Shepherd, told her the only gun they owned was recently stolen.
The sheriff's department was unavailable for comment at news time Thursday.
A winter weather advisory was issued for Wayne, Union, Switzerland, Ripley, Ohio, Franklin, Fayette and Dearborn counties on Saturday night.
IMPD officials say a 3-year-old boy has died after he was shot in the head Saturday evening.
Lawrence Police are investigating an overnight shooting in the 8800 block of Pendleton Pike. Police say the shooting happened around 3 a.m. Sunday morning.
