Stray bullet fragments hit woman in the leg

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Friday evening, police and medics responded to a call on Pear Rd.  A woman's leg was grazed by a piece of a stray bullet. 

St. Joseph County police discovered that a man who was about a mile away was practicing shooting in his backyard when he missed the target.

Officers say the woman's wound was superficial.  They say because target shooting is legal in the county, stray bullet fragments are common.

The prosecutor's office will have to decide whether this was caused by someone being reckless, or if it was purely an accident.
