CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — Police in Cape Girardeau say no one was injured when a bullet pierced the window of a home day care business.

The Southeast Missourian reports (http://bit.ly/1cCaIX6 ) police believe the bullet was a stray shot fired by an unknown person around 1 p.m. Friday.

An officer at the scene told the newspaper the bullet passed through the window and hit a wall, lodging in the drywall.
