An apartment window was damaged last week by what may have been a pellet gun.
On Thursday at 9:16 p.m., Bowling Green police were dispatched to the 200 block of South Mercer Road for a criminal damaging complaint.
The caller believed his bedroom window was shot with a bullet of some sort earlier that morning, according to the Bowling Green Police Division report.
One of three roommates said he got home around 8:45 p.m., went into his bedroom to get his computer and noticed his window blind was damaged. He told police he went over to fix it and noticed the glass was damaged as well, according to the report.
When a second roommate went to check out the damage, she located a metallic fragment on the ground close to the bedroom door. They later located a small dent in the drywall that followed the trajectory of the damage through the window.
A roommate stated that he heard glass break earlier that morning at approximately 10 a.m. and looked around the apartment but didn`t see any issues.
The officer was given the metallic fragment that they found in the bedroom. It was a piece of metal the size of a popcorn kernel that appeared to have some drywall stuck in it, according to the report.
A check of the window showed a hole in the outside screen, a hole in two panes of window glass, the window blind and a small indent in the wall. The holes were all lined up in a single trajectory. No casings were found outside the window and based on the trajectory of the holes it appeared the shot would of came from the southeast, according to the report.
The back patios of two units in the 1500 block of East Clough Street were in that direction.
An officer went to both of those apartments and asked if they had kids with pellet guns or seen kids running around with them and they said no, according to the report.
