DeMorning Links: Stray bullets

WTTG-TV’s Wisdom Martin interviews the Bahrwani family, who had brought their newborn, Ariella, home to their townhouse next to the Southeast Freeway last week. Early Sunday morning, they got a terrible surprise: Bullets fired from the freeway came through the window of the baby’s room. Says dad: “The baby would have been in the bassinet. The bullet went in probably about six inches above the bassinet. ... On one hand, it sucks that it happened. On the other hand, it could have been a lot worse.”
