SEATAC -- A Texas man says a stray bullet hit the rental car carrying his family as they stopped at a red light in the city of SeaTac.
The man and his wife heard a loud "pop" Thursday but neither they nor their 2-year-old daughter was hurt.
KOMO-TV reported that Shane Simpson said he first thought someone was throwing rocks. He pulled over to investigate and realized the car had a bullet hole.
King County sheriff's Sgt. Cindi West said it's virtually impossible to determine where the bullet came from since it could have traveled a long way. She says celebratory gunfire on holidays like July 4 "is pretty common" -- although dangerous.
Simpson said he's a recreational shooter himself but added, "you've got to come all the way to Washington to take a round."
The family was visiting relatives in Tacoma.
