    On January 1, 2014 at 9:21 a.m., a woman called the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office stating that there was a small hole in her bathroom ceiling. She believed that hole had been caused by either a firework or a stray bullet. A deputy responded and found a .45-caliber bullet within the bathroom.
