BISMARCK, ND - A Bismarck homeowner's pet was killed after a drive-by shooting early Wednesday morning.

Bismarck police say a man on the 1700 Block of North Fourth Street reported hearing something hit his window.

The man went into his living room and saw a lamp knocked over and his cat bleeding and writhing in pain. The cat later died from its wounds.

After a closer look, the man noticed a bullet hole in his window. He called police, who found shell casings from a .22 caliber gun outside the home and other bullet holes.

Damage to the home is estimated at $1,000.

Earlier this month, police also found .22 caliber shell casings on the 1100 Block of University Drive.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Bismarck Police Department at 224-8477.
