Stray bullet goes through woman’s windshield on Route 101

EPPING, N.H. (AP) — Police are trying to determine the origin of a bullet that went through the windshield of a car with a woman and two children traveling on a road in Epping, New Hampshire.

Kristen Burke, of Hampton, tells WMUR-TV she was driving on Route 101 between exits 7 and 8 last week when something struck and shattered her windshield. She thought it was a rock; glass shattered inside the car, and she had to pull over.

Workers replacing her windshield said they found .45-caliber bullet lodged in the dashboard.

No one was hurt, but Burke called the experience “terrifying” and went to police.

The origin of the bullet hasn’t been confirmed. Sig Sauer Academy, a shooting range, is located between routes 27 and 101, and is cooperating with police.
