MADISON, Wis. — A sleeping toddler owes their life to a ‘Baby Shark’ doll after a stray bullet came through the wall, according to police in Madison, Wisconsin.

At about 8:42 p.m. Sunday, officers responded to a home on the 4500 block of Cottage Grove Road in Madison, Wisconsin.

Officers said they believe a firefight took place after they found 45 shell casings and damage to two vehicles and nearby buildings.

One bullet, however, went into a home on the 900 block  of Vernon Avenue.

A child was sleeping, holding a stuffed “Baby Shark,” when the bullet ripped through the wall and hit the doll.

No one was injured.
