Bullet fired into Shelbyville home

Shelbyville Police are investigating a bullet that was fired through the front door of a home.


No injuries were reported.


About 10:45 pm Monday the Shelbyville Police Department received a report of shots fired in the 500 block of Howard Street.  Officers found that a bullet had been fired into a front door.  The bullet then traveled through the living room and struck the wall.  The bullet continued through the wall and through the next room coming to a rest after striking another wall.


At this time the Shelbyville Police Department is investigating where the bullet came from.  Detectives are also looking at the possibilities including that this could have been accidental.  Bullets can travel good distances after being fired and that makes it difficult to find an origin.  


Detectives sent it off to the Indiana State Police Lab for processing.
