ROCHESTER, N.H. — Police say a New Hampshire man in a house was not hurt after a stray bullet fired from across the street passed through a window and several walls and hit him in the forehead.
Police charged 25-year-old Corey Steven Field of Rochester on Tuesday night with felony reckless conduct for allegedly firing a handgun in his bedroom.
Police said the bullet passed through Field’s wall, across the street through a closed window and two bedroom walls before hitting the 20-year-old victim in the head. He was not identified.
Detective Sgt. Anthony Deluca said it is believed the walls and windows that were struck caused the bullet to lose power.
“The odds that it hit him, I would think, is rare, and the odds that it didn’t do any damage even more rare,” he told WMUR-TV.
