A woman living in the 200 block of Travis Place N.E. is thankful nobody was injured after an overnight shooting left a bullet hole in her kitchen wall.
The woman, who wished to remain anonymous, said she and her sister awoke to a loud noise around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The man who was shot at told Postmedia that shots penetrated his garage door and back deck, with more ricocheting off the door.
