“Dear PoPville,

My fiance and I live (with our dog, Logan) at 5th and Longfellow St NW. Last night, there were two rounds of shots fired. One shot at 10pm. The next set of 5-10 shots fired at around 1045p.

We heard something hit the back of our house (which happens to be our master bathroom which is attached to our bedroom). We were in the bedroom.

We called the police (as did many of our neighbors) who came out to look at the house and search for suspects. Supposedly, they caught a guy the next block up.

With closer inspection this morning, we saw that a rogue bullet that hit the space in between our two upper level back windows.

Any idea what to do now? Should we call the police to retrieve the bullet? Home owners insurance for repair the siding?”

Ed. Note: The police have been called and notified about the bullet/damage.
