Bullet fired into Dubuque house; police investigating

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

A bullet was found inside a Dubuque home Monday morning.

Dubuque Police were called to 568 West Locust St. in Dubuque just after 11 a.m. Monday, according to Lt. Scott Baxter.

The resident, Issac Skinner, 20, found a bullet hole. Skinner told police he thought it must have happened in the overnight hours.

After an investigation, police determined the trajectory of the round and located it in an interior wall. Baxter said the shot appears to have come from outside of the house.

Skinner told police he didn't know anyone who would have targeted him or his house. Baxter said it's still unclear if the bullet was meant for Skinner's house or if it was a stray bullet.

Police continue to investigate.
