The pillow under a 23-year-old woman's head was struck by a bullet early Sunday when at least five rounds were shot at a house in the 800 block of Custer Street from a vehicle driving by, a Salina Police Department spokesman said.
Capt. Mike Sweeney said the woman and two preschool-age boys who were sleeping in the house at 829 Custer at 6:30 a.m. were not injured, but some of the five bullets that were recovered in the house were found in the woman's bedroom. None of the bullets shot from a high-powered automatic pistol entered the bedroom where the boys were sleeping, Sweeney said.
Sweeney said the bullet that came within inches of the woman's head went through her bedroom window, through the headboard of her bed and into the pillow on which she was lying.
Officers believe the house was targeted and the shooting was not a random act, Sweeney said.
Sweeney said the shots were fired toward the south and entered the north side of the house, which is located at the southeast corner of the intersection of Custer and Franklin streets.
He said the investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
