On the morning of April 20, the Livingston County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) was dispatched to a location near the north end of LIV 237 regarding a house being struck by a projectile from a firearm, according to a press release from Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox the investigation shows two people were outside the home and a few feet apart from each other. Both reported hearing a bullet buzzing past and a very distant gunshot. The projectile struck the brick or stone portion of the home and fell to the ground.

“Fortunately neither person was injured,” Cox said.

The Missouri Department of Conservation Agent is assisting LCSO with the investigation. Officers suspect the high powered projectile was discharged by a person in the distance illegally using that type of firearm attempting to poach a wild turkey. April 20 was the opening morning of Missouri Spring Turkey Season.
