Hunters in Howard County earlier today accidentally shot out the front window of a day care, and police are investigating the incident.

Police received the call from a worker at Kids Time Out day care center in the 5800 block of Clarksville Square Drive about 1:30 p.m., according to Howard County Police. Employees heard gunshots and glass shattering, police said, so they took the children into a bathroom before making the call. No one was injured, but six children, two employees and a parent were in the day care at the time of the shooting, police said.

Officers located a shattered window when they arrived and a bullet on the window ledge but did not find anything suspicious after searching the immediate area, police said. Behind the day care, police searched and found that two hunters had shot a deer several hundred yards away.

A bullet shot at the deer struck the window, police said. The hunters, who were using shotguns, were farther away than the 150 yards from an occupied dwelling that is required.
