      Collegedale police received the call from this trailer park on Mendoza Place. A woman with non-life threatening injuries after a stray bullet entered her home.
      "A female victim that had a single gunshot wound to the leg, non-life threatening injuries she was conscious talking to us, she was actually standing up when we got on scene, she was transported by Hamilton County Emergency Medical services to the hospital," said Collegedale PIO David Myrick.
      Investigators say signs point to an accidental shooting.
      "It certainly wasn't someone coming into the trailer and purposely shooting her, but like I said we do know it came from outside into the trailer," said Myrick
      As the investigation continues, police need your help. Anyone who heard gunshots in the Collegedale area from 1:45 to 2:00 on Saturday is urged to call Detective Kat Cooper at 242-8466. Officers say the person responsible may not even know what happened.
      "If someone was out shooting, out hunting in the Collegedale area or taking target practice we would encourage them to give us a call and let us talk to them, you know because it may be a situation where they were nowhere in this area or this vicinity but we need to know if someone was in this area and shooting."
