WILKES-BARRE — A stray bullet almost hit a sleeping girl at a troubled housing complex in Wilkes-Barre.
Police said a gun accidentally went off in an apartment in Sherman Hills on North Empire Court around 3 a.m. on Wednesday.
Authorities said the bullet went through the floor of an upstairs apartment and hit the floor, just a few feet away from a girl sleeping in bed.
Wilkes-Barre Police said the gunshot appears to be an accidental discharge, but officers are still investigating the circumstances.
Kiyara Gause told Newswatch 16 that she is upset by the way the property managers have been handling the crime issues at Sherman Hills, after her 6-year-old daughter was nearly hit by the stray bullet.
