In a Cincinnati.com article, stray bullets were cited as the reason for one local fire station to install bullet-resistant glass. The Over-the-Rhine fire station has dealt with previous incidents of stray bullets bringing to light “a bigger issue: firefighters working in high-crime neighborhoods have to worry about more than burning buildings.”
The recent incident involved two stray bullets. “One bullet pierced a garage door window; the other lodged in a window. On the other side of the window: a lieutenant’s desk.” Focusing on the safety of the firefighters, the city immediately approved the installation of bulletproof glass.
