— Police are trying to determine who fired a bullet that narrowly missed a toddler after punching through the wall of a family’s home.

Barbara Baker tells the Post-Star that she was inside her home in the town of Corinth with her twin 2-year-old sons Tuesday morning when she heard a loud noise. She noticed a hole in her kitchen wall and found a bullet on a countertop.

Baker says the bullet missed one of her sons by about 6 feet.

Saratoga County sheriff’s deputies are trying to find who was responsible for firing the .270-caliber bullet, a type of round popular with deer hunters.

Baker’s home is located on the southern edge of the Adirondacks in a wooded area frequented by hunters.
