A homeowner in Chisago County said a bullet went through a door and bounced off a wall in their house, according to the sheriff's office. 

A tweet showed a damaged window and a shotgun slug that authorities suspect came from a hunter. 


No one was injured in the incident, but the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is trying to locate the hunter who was involved. 

The sheriff's office also released this statement on Facebook:

"Always be aware of your target and what is beyond. In the moment of looking down the barrel of your gun with the hopes of shooting a deer, you can forget about what's behind that deer. In this instance it's believed the hunter was shooting at an upward trajectory, which allowed the shot to carry as far as it did."
