MOUNT IDA, Wis. - A family gathering in Mount Ida was disrupted Thursday morning when a stray bullet from a nearby hunter went through the residence, according to the Grant County Sheriff's Department.

Law enforcement officials said the direction Zart fired from was consistent with the path of the bullet that traveled through the residence.

There were no injuries reported.
