SALINA, Kan. (AP) - Police say a Salina woman is lucky to have escaped injury when a bullet fired into her home struck her bed and traveled through the mattress.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/TEAfGo ) the shot was one of two fired into the woman’s home as she slept around 11:30 p.m. Thursday. A house across the street was also hit by a bullet that was found in a closet.

Investigators continued looking Friday for whoever was firing multiple shots with a high-powered rifle.

Police Capt. Mike Sweeney says two rounds entered the rear of the sleeping woman’s home. One came through a bedroom wall, struck the headboard and traveled through the mattress and a front wall. That bullet was found on the porch.

Officers did not immediately find the second bullet.
