After realizing her Venetian blinds were damaged on Tuesday, police say a Rock Hill woman discovered that a bullet had been fired into her house, penetrating her closet door and flying through a storage room before it landed outside in the grass.

Police were sent to a Fawnborough Court home, off Constitution Boulevard, at about 8 a.m. when a woman, 29, reported that she found a bullet hole in her house, according to a Rock Hill police report. The woman told police she saw that the Venetian blinds on the window in her back room were damaged. She looked closer and saw that the window had a hole in it.

She turned around to look across the room, police say, and saw another hole in the closet door. The bullet, she told officers, likely then traveled through the closet’s interior wall and left a bulge in her living room wall. The woman told police she did not recall hearing gunshots or noise recently, saying she was unsure when the bullet was fired into her home because she does not often visit her back room, which she uses for storage.

An officer found the bullet outside the house in the grass behind a nearby house, the report states. Police were unable to establish contact with the homeowner.
