SALISBURY — A Kannapolis man says he found bullet holes in an upstairs bedroom of his Johnson Street home after finding a hole in a window.

The victim contacted the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office on Friday but said the discovery was made the day before, according to Maj. John Sifford.

The victim said he heard a noise upstairs at his home and saw a bullet hole in a window. There was also glass on the floor of the room. The bullet traveled through a play tent inside his children’s room. No one was struck.

The man told a deputy he had no idea the direction the shots came from, Sifford said.

Investigators determined no one reported hearing gunshots the day before in that area.
