Blotter: Session interrupted by unknown projectile

A juvenile counseling session was interrupted Wednesday evening after the counselor believed she heard a gunshot or a rock hit her window, according to law enforcement reports.

Denton County sheriff’s deputies report the female counselor was in session with two female juveniles when she heard something hit the window by the couch they were sitting on in her office. The two juveniles were instructed to go to another room where they closed and locked the door.

A deputy responded and reported they saw a two-inch hole in the double-pane window and the first pane was still intact but shattered.

Deputies said after a search of the perimeter, in the 8300 block of U.S. Highway 380 East, they were still unsure of what caused the damage.
