Responsible gun owners celebrate politely.
“Our daughter came running upstairs at 1:50 (a.m.), banging on the door and yelled, ‘Mommy, Mommy! Someone shot at us!’” Julie Johnson said. “At first we thought it was just fireworks, but she said, ‘No, there’s glass everywhere.’”
Police told Johnson it appeared to be a fallen bullet, possibly from celebratory gunfire. It came in through the top of a bedroom window, ricocheted from a rail on a top bunk bed and landed on the bottom mattress, Johnson said. They found it about 10 inches from Miranda’s pillow.

According to the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, the 80-year-old man was golfing at The Golf Club at Camelot when he was struck by a bullet, which was fired by a man attempting to shoot a woodchuck on his property.

“I realized it was a gunshot, and we saw my dog run down the hill,” Masson said. “He only made it 10 – 15 feet down the hill before he laid down.”
Masson looked up the hill to see who was responsible for firing the weapon and injuring the dog, named Lucky.
“That’s when I noticed two individuals walking over and kind of looking directly at him and watching him kind of lay down,” he said. “And then they turned around and walked away.”
