FIREARMS OFFENSE reported Sunday by a town of Union couple who found a bullet hole in their home. A fragment was found inside the house. No one was home at the time. Deputies determined the shot likely came from a party the night before from a residence about a half-mile away across some fields. Because several people had fired at a target at the residence, the person responsible for the bullet could not be determined.
