No one hurt when stray 357 bullet strikes home in NE Moscow

No one was hurt when a stray bullet struck a home in Northeast Moscow.  Moscow Police were called to a residence on Bonnie Court Saturday afternoon around 3:30.  A 22 year old man there told officers he was handling his 357 revolver while he was in the bathroom.  He mistakenly thought the handgun was empty when it fired a round which went through several walls exiting his home.  The bullet then traveled down a short section of Bonnie Court before striking a home across the street on Rodeo Drive.  No one was home when the bullet apparently hit the front door.  The man was cited for illegal discharge of a weapon inside city limits.  He told police he was sitting on the toilet when the gun accidentally went off.
