REDMOND, OR -- A Redmond resident was not hurt when a bullet reportedly “bounced” off their head while watching TV, Monday night. Police responded to the Wickiup Court home to investigate the unusual circumstances just before 10 p.m. They found the bullet on the floor and confirmed it traveled through a fence, the exterior wall of the home and a picture frame before hitting the resident in the head.
They discovered another hole in a neighboring home, where they recovered a 9mm gun and a spent casing in the bedroom. The neighbor, 24-year-old Ryan Pine, was arrested on a number of charges, including reckless endangering, child neglect and an outstanding warrant.
It's unclear why he may have fired the gun, although police don't believe he was trying to hurt anyone. Drugs and alcohol may have been contributing factors in the incident.
