Stray bullet hits Crawford County home


WAUZEKA, WI (KWWL) -- Police in a small western Wisconsin town want to know how a stray bullet wound up in a couple's home.

The Crawford County Sheriff's department says it got a call around 10:00pm Saturday night of damage to window in a home in Wauzeka.  Wauzeka is about 17 miles east of Prairie du Chien. 

Officers say they found a bullet from a high-powered rifle inside Gregory Herwig and Terressa Chapman's home on Industrial Drive.

The sheriff's office looked at evidence at the scene and says it appears the bullet had been shot from a long distance away.  Officers don't believe anyone deliberately shot at the home.

The incident remains under investigation.
