BATON ROUGE - A reckless celebratory tradition left a bullet hole in a car near Highland Road New Year's Day.

On Wednesday morning, a vehicle sitting in the WBRZ parking was found with a shattered rear windshield. The culprit: a single bullet that appeared to have fallen out of the sky overnight.

Law enforcement has frequently warned against discharging firearms into the air on holidays like New Year's Eve and the Fourth of July. On Tuesday night, a Texas woman was reportedly killed by stray gunfire as a result of similar celebrations.
