Hunters in Howard County earlier today accidentally shot out the
front window of a day care, and police are investigating the incident.
Police received the call from a worker at Kids Time Out day care
center in the 5800 block of Clarksville Square Drive about 1:30 p.m.,
according to Howard County Police. Employees heard gunshots and glass
shattering, police said, so they took the children into a bathroom
before making the call. No one was injured, but six children, two
employees and a parent were in the day care at the time of the shooting,
Officers located a shattered window when they arrived and a bullet on
the window ledge but did not find anything suspicious after searching
the immediate area, police said. Behind the day care, police searched
and found that two hunters had shot a deer several hundred yards away.
A bullet shot at the deer struck the window, police said. The
hunters, who were using shotguns, were farther away than the 150 yards
from an occupied dwelling that is required.
