Police: Bullet goes through Gresham apartment wall, hitting woman in leg as she slept
A woman was hit by a stray bullet while she slept early Thursday morning. It happened during a home invasion in a neighboring apartment.
Officers were called about 4 a.m. on reports of a shooting in the 200 block of Northeast 162nd Avenue.
A woman was shot in the leg, authorities said. She was taken to the hospital and is expected to recover.
"It terrifies me because I have a pregnant teenager in my home," said a woman who lives next door to the woman who was shot.
She says several bullets struck her unit, shattering her sliding glass door.
"We all hit the deck. I called 9-1-1," she said.
Initial reports state that a man went into an apartment and tried to shoot someone. The bullet went through a wall and into a neighbor’s apartment, hitting the woman.
"It was pop, pop, pop back to back, very loud," said another neighbor. "I could have sworn it was right in my living room; yeah, it was horrible."
The intended victim was not injured, officials said.
Police have not released information about the home invasion situation. No word on whether police are still looking for a suspect.
