Hooksett couple concerned after bullet rips through home's window, fear cat was target


HOOKSETT - Police are investigating after a home on Meadowcrest Road in Hooksett was shot at with a firearm sometime Monday.

The homeowner, Richard Lessard says he thinks the shooter had to have been right out in front of his home when they pulled the trigger. The bullet went right through a second floor window that's now patched up with duct tape. It's unclear what kind of firearm was used, but the bullet stopped and fell to the ground after entering the home.

Lessard and his wife noticed the damage when they got home from the movies, but say it could have happened early in the morning when they were sleeping. Lessard worries their cat, Pumpkin, could have been the target since he naps on the window sill.

It's especially scary since his wife has been doing a lot of work at a desk right next to where to bullet came through.

“She's pretty shaken up, she feels like we've been a little bit violated," Lessard said. "We're talking about doing things around the house now to kind of help us with the security, because we were always trusting people. We never thought that anybody would do anything just out of random."

Police are looking into surveillance video in the area.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hooksett Police Department 624-1560, or leave an anonymous tip on their website.
