WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Wichita family says someone fired a bullet that lodged itself in their daughter's playroom wall over the weekend.

KWCH-TV reports Wichita police responded to a call of shots fired around 2 a.m. Saturday morning in the neighborhood, with some neighbors reporting they heard a car race away shortly afterward.

Mike Santee says he first noticed a bulge in the hallway wall, and then found the curtains in her playroom had been torn.

Santee says he, his wife and their 4-year-old daughter were sleeping in the room next door to the playroom, just feet away from where the bullet struck.

He says the most unnerving part of the incident is not knowing where the bullet came from, and that one of the family members could have been struck.
