    BROCKTON, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – A shot was fired through a Brockton house, hitting a 14-year-old boy's bedroom.

    According to The Enterprise, it happened Wednesday night at an Arthur Paquin Way home. Resident Alma Arias said stray bullets entered her son's bedroom and "stopped about a foot from him."

    The unidentified boy was not hurt, but his mother said he was afraid to sleep in his room Wednesday night following the incident, which left his face covered in a white dust. The bullet also left holes in some of his clothes.

    Police told the newspaper the bullet came from about 500 feet away where shots were fired at 9:57 p.m. Wednesday on North Warren Avenue. At that time, police received a call reporting five or six shots in the area of North Warren Avenue and Richmond Street.
