Thunderbolt Man Finds Bullet after Someone Shoots Through Home on New Year's Eve

Posted: Updated:

Ronnie Ellis of Thunderbolt may appreciate 2014 more than he thought. That's because he says he lived through it when a bullet that came through his ceiling around midnight on New Year's Eve might have killed him. "I heard that what comes up must come down and I can now attest that it's true," he told us.

Ellis says he was outside close to midnight on New Year's Eve hoping to catch a glimpse of fireworks when he heard several gunshots. "They seemed kind of far away, too," he says.

But Ellis says when he came inside, he saw a puff smoke coming from his ceiling and debris falling. "That's when I knew a bullet had really come through my roof," he said

He called police and made a report. And then this morning Ellis said his son came over and actually found the bullet some 20 feet away in his home. "It traveled pretty far and there's no telling what would have happened if I had been inside," he says.

Ellis is taking is all good naturedly, saying he's not necessarily angry at the shooter but wanted to let people know there really are consequences to these types of actions. "I'm just happy I lived through it," he says
