Two people were showered with plaster when a bullet entered their apartment in Uniontown.

The man and woman were in bed watching television inside their apartment at the Pershing Court public housing complex at 4:37 a.m. Monday when they heard as many as 15 gunshots, said Uniontown Police in a report.

The man told police he jumped out of bed and told the woman to stay down when plaster landed on both of them.

Police said they found two bullet holes in the exterior siding of the residence. One bullet entered the home, where it traveled through a closet and wall before striking a television and landing on the floor.

No injuries were reported. Police took the bullet into evidence.
