NTV’s Rosie Mullaley was in provincial court today and files this report.
Police are investigating a report of a rifle round that went through a home in Isle aux Morts Nov. 5.
Shortly before 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, police received the report and attended the home located on Ridgeview Crescent in Isle aux Morts. A bullet struck the home, went through an exterior wall, an interior wall and came to rest in a bedroom closet. The home was unoccupied at the time and the incident is believed to have occurred sometime between 8 a.m.-12 p.m. that day.
The incident appears to be accidental in nature. It is believed the shot was likely a stray round that may have been fired by a hunter from a distant wooded area.
