BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A Baton Rouge family is ready to move out of their home after finding a 9mm bullet buried in a chair cushion, and a bullet hole through the roof of his back porch.
The Callender family returned from their vacation to find the damage.
Clint Callender sits in that same chair on his back porch every night. Some nights he says his quiet getaway gets interrupted.
"Just randomly at night. Late, every now and then, we'll hear pop, pop, pop," said Callender.
Callender says he first found the hole in one of the pillow cushions, but then he saw something more disturbing.
"I just happened to lean back and look up at that hole. I knew right away it was a bullet hole - had to be," Callender said. "I just thank God that I wasn't here."
He says after he dug around, he found the bullet that was inside a pillow near his chair.
"Full metal jacket, almost a round nose 9mm bullet. And it's got some weight to it."
Callender is no stranger to bullets. He and his father have done their share of hunting. He believes the bullet he found is from Fourth of July revelers who shot their gun into the air.
"It could've turned out a whole lot worse."
Callender posted a video to his Facebook page with a warning that those bullets have to land somewhere. This incident, he says, is just what his family needs to get out of the area.
"Give us some incentive to go ahead and move to Natchez, get out of here."
