Bullet takes out car window in Eau Claire


Eau Claire (WQOW) - A scary situation on Eau Claire's south side Friday ends with no one hurt.

Friday morning Eau Claire police responded to a call of an accidental gun shot along Sessions Street.

Police say a man was cleaning his rifle when it accidentally fired and no one was hit.

Police say the shot went through his apartment window and was found about 200 yards away lodged inside a car door.

"It doesn't appear that he tried to discharge the weapon,” said Lt. Tim Golden with the Eau Claire Police Department. “In the end we're just glad no one was injured. While careless, up front with the discharge of the weapon, he certainly responded the way we would like him to."

Police say the owner of the rifle was issued a citation.
