Stray Bullet Found in Child’s Bedroom Wall in Bronx

BRONX- A bullet was found in a child’s bedroom wall in the Bronx.

Family members discovered the bullet lodged in the wall of their child’s bedroom at around 7 am today.

Family members made the discovery on the second floor of the house at Ryer Avenue in the Mount Hope section of the Bronx. 

The stray bullet that struck the child’s room may have come from a shootout earlier that day. 

Cops say there were reports of shots fired at around midnight on the corner of Ryer and Burnside Avenues.

The brazen gunman had opened fire a mere two blocks away from the 46th Precinct.

No word on who was the intended target or if there is a description of the gunman or gunmen.

The bullet had missed the 15-year-old girl who lived in the room. Instead the bullet entered her room, shattered a mirror and then exited through another wall and ended up in the bathroom.

Miraculously no one was struck by the bullet or flying debris. No injuries have been reported.

It is also unclear if anyone had been injured by the gunman or how many shots were fired.

Cops are not saying whether anyone was on the street when the shooting occurred and had been hit and sought medical attention at nearby St. Barnabas Hospital which has been designated a level- one trauma center.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
