Resident Wakes Up to Find Bullet in Living Room

 

An Arlington woman woke up this morning to find a .45 caliber bullet in her living room.

This incident happened on N. Bedford Street in the Lyon Park neighborhood. A resident of a townhouse called police around 9:00 a.m. after finding that a bullet — likely a stray bullet — had punched through the front of her house and had come to rest on the living room floor. Only the woman and her husband were at home at the time, according to Arlington County police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.

Detectives were called in and were able to determine the trajectory of the bullet, but have so far been unable to figure out where exactly it came from.

“It could have come from numerous places in a pretty large radius,” Sternbeck said.

A search of the neighborhood this morning did not turn up any clues, but police are looking into a report of a gunshot heard near the 2700 block of Washington Boulevard around 1:00 this morning. The man who called in the gunshot was reportedly intoxicated, and at the time officers were unable to locate anybody else who had heard the shot.

Police are asking anybody with information about the incident to call the Arlington non-emergency line at 703-558-2222.
