CUMMING, Ga. — A man found his bathroom window shattered after he heard a bullet had been fired, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

At about 8 a.m. Feb. 1, a man in the 6000 block of Walker Avenue told deputies a bullet went through his window and lodged into the wall.

Deputies said they saw a quarter-sized hole in the bottom of the window and bullet fragments scattered on the floor. There were two small holes in the bathroom wall likely caused by bullet fragments, they said.

Deputies talked to a neighbor who said he had accidentally discharged his “AR-15 firearm” while clearing it to clean.

The neighbor apologized and said he would pay for all damages.
