Shots fired into house in Grant County

The act of shooting at rural road signs came close to tragedy on Father’s Day weekend, according to a Grant County homeowner. 

An unknown person or persons fired four bullets through a road sign on Markley Hollow Road, Saturday, June 15, at about 8:15 p.m. Three of these bullets struck a house on Markley Hollow, two of which came through the walls of the dwelling, startling the homeowner who was sitting within a few feet of them. Grant County sheriff’s deputies recovered a 9-millimeter slug from an interior wall of the house.

The Grant County Sheriff’s Department is investigating this incident. An official report has yet to be released. Anyone with information about this should contact the sheriff’s department at (608) 723-2157.

The JWalkers Youth Group and the Holy Family Parish are making a difference in other parts of the United States. Since 2013, one year after the organization started, the teenagers, and their chaperones, have served week-long, yearly missions in storm ravaged communities across the country. A recent trip to the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahasee, Fla., saw their largest ever participation.

Forty high schoolers and 10 adults left Prairie du Chien June 7, and rode a Warco bus to the Florida Panhandle, to assist nine homeowners and one worship center still cleaning up and in need of repairs from Hurricanes Michael (2018) and Irma (2017).
