Freak accident causes house to be hit by artillery


Between 9:15 and 9:20 p.m. Saturday, a 105mm howitzer round was fired at the Oklahoma Full Auto Shoot and Trade Show outside Wyandotte. According to the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department, the round apparently ricocheted off the ground, bounced into the air, traveled about a mile and a half to Gene and Jeanne Kelley's property, where it ripped a limb off a tree, hit the ground again and then bounced through the back wall of the house and into the couple's bedroom.

Gene Kelley said the round slamming through their house wasn't as noticeable as one might think.

"I don't really really recall much as far as hearing noise," he said. "I heard the glass break in the bedroom. When we went into the bedroom to see why the glass was broke, we got to looking and saw the hole in the wall and the ceiling was damaged and the other wall was damaged."
