TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Tippecanoe County mother is speaking out after discovering a bullet hit her toddler's crib.
Tippecanoe County sheriff's deputies have no idea where it came from.
Bethany Grundy said it was a typical night of putting her toddler to sleep, but what she found in the process wasn't typical at all. Grundy said she noticed chunks of wood in the room.
At first she thought her daughter may have broken a piece off her crib, then she noticed pieces of glass on floor. Moments later she found a bullet deputies believe came from a high powered rifle.
"It came straight through her window, hit the metal frame part of her window and then it hit her crib," said Grundy.
It was an accident that could have been avoided, which is why Grundy is sharing this story.
"My husband is a gun enthusiast and hunts so we're not against guns at all, but if you're going to be using a firearm no matter what it is, that you know what you're doing and you know how to use it," she said.
She hopes the message is enough to stop something like this from happening to anyone else.
Grundy said finding out who did this and why won't be easy. Deputies said it's possible the bullet traveled one or two miles before hitting the home.
