Celebratory bullet pierces roof of Kealakekua home
KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) A Kealakekua man says a stray bullet fired during New Year's Eve celebrations pierced the roof of his home.
Farzad Fazeli says the bullet left a 1-inch diameter hole in the ceiling of his dining room, then hit the wood floor near a table and bounced toward a window. No one was in the room at the time the bullet struck between 10:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. Tuesday. Fazeli says police confiscated the bullet, but told him it would be difficult to pinpoint exactly who fired the shot.
According to Fazeli, the incident left him and his family feeling "freaked out and insecure."
