At least one person was home when a bullet was fired at a Palmetto home early Wednesday, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
Around 3:35 a.m. Wednesday, someone who lived in a home in the 2300 block of Second Avenue East in Palmetto reported hearing multiple gunshots nearby, according to the sheriff's office. Later Wednesday morning, they found a bullet hole in the front of their home.
A bullet had penetrated the stucco and a layer of concrete block, but no shell casings were found in a search of the area, according to the sheriff's office.
Sheriff's office spokesman Dave Bristow said an 18-year-old woman, her boyfriend and an infant live in the home. No one was injured in the incident. They told deputies they do not believe their home was targeted in the shooting.
