WINOOSKI, Vt. (AP) - Police in the Vermont city of Winooski are trying to find the source of a gunshot that went through the window of the apartment of a regional television reporter.

Both police and New England Cable News reporter Jack Thurston say they do not believe he was targeted by the 10:30 p.m. Tuesday gunshot.

Thurston tells the Burlington Free Press (https://bfpne.ws/2u8onne ) he was getting ready for bed when he heard the sound and immediately knew it was a gunshot.

Thurston says he later he found a hole in a window and the bullet lodged in a storage box.

He said he was a little more than 10 feet from where the bullet hit.

Winooski Police Chief Rick Hebert said it was an old-style lead bullet, which is not manufactured anymore.
