Stein Ave.


A 12-year-old boy was in the backyard of his family's Stein Ave. home Monday evening when he noticed a bullet lodged in the siding of the house. The family had been out of town over the weekend and did not know when a shot would have been fired. Officers canvassed the neighborhood, letting others know of the discovery. No one had heard a gunshot and no additional damage was found. Based on the bullet's likely trajectory, it appeared the shot would have come from nearby Swanton Rd.
