Bullet comes through wall, lands in bed

Four people escaped injury shortly before midnight Thursday when a bullet came through the wall of a south Wichita house, Wichita police said.

The victims were asleep at about 11:45 p.m. when they heard an object come through a window of the house in the 2000 block of East 51st Street South east of South Hydraulic, Lt. Nolte said.

Several hours later, a 31-year-old man who lives there found a bullet in his bed, Nolte said. The bullet was so disfigured that investigators aren't sure what type of gun it came from.

It's possible someone may have fired a gun several blocks away and the bullet happened to strike the house, Nolte said.

The four people inside the house ranged in age from 1 to 31, he said.

Anyone with information that may shed light on the incident should call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111.
