Stray bullet strikes Hampden home
HAMPDEN, Maine (AP) — Police are investigating after a Hampden family returned home to find two bullet holes in their walls.
Chief Joe Rogers says the homeowner’s son pointed out the bullet holes high on a living room wall on Tuesday afternoon, then the family heard gunfire outside.
It turns out a man was target shooting at a nearby golf course and a stray bullet had struck the home.
WABI-TV (http://bit.ly/YFVKBP) reports that the man told police he had permission from the golf course owner and he thought he'd taken all the proper precautions before firing the weapon.
The man’s gun was confiscated but his name was not released because he was not charged.
No one was injured and the incident remains under investigation.
