Family home hit by stray bullet

SHANGHAI police are investigating a shooting incident in which a bullet was fired through the bedroom window of an apartment in Baoshan District yesterday morning.

The owner of the 12th-floor property, surnamed Liu, said she was in another room when she heard a loud bang from the bedroom.

When she entered the room she saw a fist-sized hole in the double-glazed window and saw a bullet on the floor, reported.

Liu said she often plays with her 6-month-old baby in the bedroom, but both the infant and Liu’s mother were in a different room at the time of the incident and were unhurt.

“Fortunately, we were not there. Otherwise, the consequences would have been unthinkable,” she said.

Police said they think the bullet was a stray shot from a nearby shooting range. Investigations are ongoing.
