Bullet Strikes Mobile Home in Rochester
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News)- Rochester Police are investigating the source of a gunshot that struck a mobile home along Marion Rd. Tuesday evening.
Police Captain Casey Moilanen says officers responded to the residence in the 1600 block of Marion Rd. around 7:30 p.m. A 62-year-old man told officers he was standing by a dryer when he heard a loud noise and the dryer began smoking. The man said he moved the dryer away from the wall and saw a bullet fall to the ground.
Moilanen said responding officers saw a bullet hole on the outside of the home struck with gunfire and spotted another bullet hole in a neighboring home. Police say the trajectory of the two holes suggests the shot may have been fired out of the neighboring residence.
Moilanen said officers executed a search warrant at the neighboring home but did not find evidence a shooting had taken place. He said there were four people in the home struck by the bullet and that no one was injured.
