Judy Jacobson was shaken but not hurt after a stray bullet came through the wall of her apartment at 1445 17th Street South in Fargo.
Jacobson was getting ready for work Monday when she heard a "pop" and a crash. When she checked, she found a hole in the wall. The slug continued across the room where it shattered a picture.
Jacobson says if the shot been fired a few minutes sooner, it would have struck her. She says she probably wouldn't be alive.
Police say a neighbor was attempted to fix a jammed gun when it accidently fired.
The gun owner is likely to be cited for discharging a firearm within city limits.
