Tuesday morning, White County deputies responded to a report of a bullet striking a house. Diana and Neal Mason told the Sheriff’s Department that around 2pm Monday that they heard two gunshots, and later noticed a hole on the outside of the house, but did not associate the two. On Tuesday while cleaning, Diana found a hole through a cabinet and the wall in line with the hole outside, and later found a 40 or 45 caliber bullet while vacuuming. The report states that the shot appears to come from some houses to the southeast of the Mason’s residence.
