Sheriff’s Report: stray bullet hits bedroom wall

Last week, two people contacted the Summit County Sheriff’s Office after they discovered bullet holes in their home in the Snyderville Basin.
On Wednesday, Aug. 9, the couple heard and loud noise and found what appeared to be a bullet hole in the bedroom wall of their apartment, according to a report.
