Bullet strikes Bluffton residence

A Bluffton couple heard gunshots Tuesday, and a bullet broke through their wall and landed in their bedroom, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.

The man told deputies the shots sounded as if they were near their home on Pine Island Road. After the shots ceased, he inspected his bedroom and found a small-caliber bullet on the floor.

Deputies were unable to locate shell casings, and neighbors said they did not see any suspicious cars or people, according to the report.
