Bullet In Sink Might Be From Officer At Ohio Range

Investigators have determined a stray bullet that was fired into a northern Ohio home and found in a bathroom sink likely came from a police officer shooting at a range more than a half-mile away. A report from the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office shows a Port Clinton resident reported hearing a pop and a metallic sound Thursday afternoon before finding a copper-jacketed bullet in his bathroom sink. No injuries were reported. The Port Clinton News-Herald says the report shows the .40-caliber round was similar to the ammunition officers were using at the shooting range that day. The bullet pierced a hole in the side of the home that faces toward a field and the woods that separate it from the shooting range.
