A tenant at an unnamed apartment complex Wednesday told police he found a bullet wedged into the wall in his closet, according to a police report.

The Denton Police Department was dispatched to the tenant’s 911 call around 7:44 a.m. Wednesday. The tenant in the 400 block of Coronado Drive said he heard a loud noise outside that sounded like a gunshot around 1:47 a.m., but he didn’t see anything when he got up to check.

The report says he woke up around 7:20 a.m. and found debris in his residence and a hole that went through a closet door. He reported finding a bullet wedged into the wall and found the bullet entered his apartment through a window frame.

He doesn’t know anyone that would’ve shot into his apartment and believes the incident was a random, accidental shooting. The report is still under investigation.

A woman reported around 12:17 p.m. that someone broke into the sheds belonging to the soup kitchen the night before and took a dolly and air conditioning unit. While she was speaking with police, someone told her that a man had returned the dolly earlier in the day.
