A bullet was found embedded in a kitchen wall at a house on North Montana Avenue on Sunday morning.

At 10:34 a.m., a woman called Lewis and Clark County dispatch and said someone had thrown a rock through her home's window. A deputy arrived at 11:25 a.m. and investigated, along with the homeowner and a neighbor.

The deputy discovered a round hole in a blanket hanging over the window in the home, and then found a 7 mm bullet lodged in a two-by-four in the kitchen. 

The bullet had gone through a shed and between two homes before hitting the window in the house and stopping in a wall.

According to Sheriff Leo Dutton, the round was most likely fired from the Lake Helena area and could have hit the woman who lived in the home had she been there. "There are no suspects and we're thankful no one was injured," Dutton said. "The elements of safe firearm use still apply."

Dutton said that anyone with information should call the sheriff's office at 447-8293.
