PINEVILLE, N.C. — A mother is lucky her child wasn't hit by a bullet that pierced through three walls in her infant's room.
WCNC Charlotte reports Megin Turcotte said she put her 11-week-old daughter asleep in her crib Thursday night.

"For whatever reason, I moved her to my room that night, at about 1:30 in the morning," she said.

Later that morning, when Turcotte walked into her baby's room, she thought she saw a bug on the wall.

Then she realized it was a hole.

Pineville police said the hole was from a bullet that flew through the wall, flying over the child's crib before entering and exiting two other walls in the room.

A police report noted the bullet came from a domestic dispute next door.
