Raymond Rosemeier, 55, said he was startled when the glass covering a clock on a shelf in his home office in Luzerne Township shattered on Saturday.

Rosemeier said he was sitting a few feet away, sifting through paperwork about 1:30 p.m. in his home on Howard Street when the glass globe on the clock shattered.

“I just thought the sunlight heated it up, and it caused it to crack and explode. It was an adrenaline rush when it happened, but I really didn't think anything of it,” Rosemeier said.

Rosemeier said he looked over his computer at the front window in the office, but it appeared to be fine.

Rosemeier said he cleaned up the mess, but when his wife came home a few hours later and looked around, she discovered a bullet. She also found a hole in another window of the office and a matching hole in the curtain.

“It makes you think. I've heard of this happening during hunting season, but out of season?” Rosemeier said.

Rosemeier said a neighbor who lives about a block away reported a similar incident on the same day.

State police did not have a report on the second incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 724-929-6262.
