O’Haco points to the two inch hole made by the bullet in the cabinet.
She said that after the bullet entered her wall, sheriff's officers vowed to step-up security in the area.
Commander Larry Dunagan, public information officer for Navajo County Sheriff's Office, said that heightened security usually consists of more patrol on a more frequent basis.
He added that there are many charges a person could face if they are recklessly discharging a firearm. The charges range from misdemeanors to felony offenses.
"Whoever is handling the weapon needs to realize where the bullet is going to go if they miss the can or bottle they are shooting at," he explained.
O'Haco suggests that parents become more aware where their kids are when they have guns. “Those bullets have to come down somewhere,” she added.
“I’ve lived in New York City, Manhattan and Los Angles, and I feel the least safe here because they never catch them, they never discipline them,” she confessed.
