On Tuesday, July 2nd, a volunteer firefighter from the Millington Fire Department was transporting fire suppression equipment, emergency medical supplies, and camping gear to an event in Ophir. Driving south down 101, just south of town at approx. 12:00 to 12:30 he heard something hit his open trailer in the area around the Flores Creek bridge.

The incident was reported to the Curry County Sheriffs Department. The tent pole with the bullet was taken as evidence. The bullet is reported to be a 30 caliber.
