SALINA, Kan. — Police say a Salina woman is lucky to have escaped injury when a bullet fired into her home struck her bed and traveled through the mattress.

The Salina Journal reports the shot was one of two fired into the woman’s home as she slept around 11:30 p.m. Thursday. A house across the street was also hit by a bullet that was found in a closet.

Investigators continued looking Friday for whoever was firing multiple shots with a high-powered rifle.

Police Capt. Mike Sweeney says two rounds entered the rear of the sleeping woman’s home. One came through a bedroom wall, struck the headboard and traveled through the mattress and a front wall. That bullet was found on the porch.

Officers did not immediately find the second bullet.
