Bullet hole in a window

The photograph below is what Lowell Police found when they got called to 96 Shaw Street this afternoon by a man who found a bullet hole in the side of his minivan.

The man, who didn’t provide his name, said his wife heard what may have been a gunshot about 4 a.m.

The man told me his wife wasn’t sure at the time that what she heard was a gunshot, so she didn’t report it. Neither did anyone else in the area.

The minivan was parked in a driveway next to the home.

I’ve seen a lot of bullet holes in windows where the round just passes through the window and leaves a nice, little, round hole, but it looks like this round hit the metal at the bottom of the window, and took out a lot more of the glass.

Police radio broadcasts indicate that no gunshots were reported around that time. The closest was a report of possible gunshots near Pine and Wilder streets at 2 a.m. Police found no evidence of gunshots at Wilder and Pine, though.

If anyone saw anything in the area that could be related to this, call Lowell Police at 978.937.3200.
