One Eastern Carolina woman says she's glad to be alive after a bullet entered her bedroom and landed on her pillow.

Ernestine Spruill says she was getting ready to jump in bed around 1AM Sunday morning when a bullet entered her bedroom through the ceiling.

Spruill who lives in Lewiston-Woodville in Bertie County says she told her 7 year old daughter to stay on the couch while she fixed the sheets.

That's when she heard a noise that sounded like glass shattering according to Spruill.

Bertie County investigators tell Spruill the bullet she found came from a 38 caliber revolver. Spruill and her two young children are glad everyone is safe.

Bertie County investigators have not made any arrests.

Spruill hopes this will shed some light on the violence in her neighborhood.
