An Augusta man called Richmond County authorities Thursday after discovering that a bullet had been fired into his home overnight.
The 60-year-old said he was outside his home on the 100 block of D Court checking a water valve when he noticed a hole in a window, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.
When a deputy arrived, he went inside the home and followed the bullet’s trajectory. According to his notes, the bullet passed through a TV and struck a wall. It was found underneath a dresser that held the TV.
The homeowner thinks the shot was fired between 5 p.m. Wednesday and 10:30 a.m. Thursday.
