Bullet breaks window at U of M residence hall

An apparent stray bullet broke two panes of glass early Monday and landed on a windowsill of the Comstock Hall dormitory at the University of Minnesota, police said.

Chuck Miner, deputy chief of the University Police Department, said the bullet "was most likely fired from a significant distance away and was not targeted at the resident or even at the residence hall."

The incident happened shortly before 4 a.m. Monday on the university's East Bank campus. Miner said there is a good chance the bullet was fired from the other side of the Mississippi River and just happened to hit Comstock Hall.
