Two small children and mother narrowly missed when target shooters hit their home in Indiana

A woman and her two small children were at home in Porter County, Indiana, when a bullet entered their home, narrowly missing them.  It was shot by neighbors who were target-shooting without a backstop.

No charges.

From an article:
A woman and two small children reportedly narrowly missed being struck by a stray bullet Thursday evening in the 300 block of Pepper Creek Drive in Porter County's Union Township. According to an article in the Times, authorities believe the bullet came from a couple who were target shooting at watermelon without a backstop 18-hundred feet away. No arrests were made, but police did confiscate the handguns used in the incident, and forwarded charges of criminal recklessness against the couple to prosecutors for consideration.
Bullets don't know when to stop.
