A mother and her 12-year-old child woke up to the sound of bullets being fired into their Manchester, N.H., apartment early Thursday morning, police said.

Officers were called to the 200 block of Central Street around 12:30 a.m. after a resident reported possible gunshots in the area, Manchester police said in a statement. Upon arrival, police located bullet holes in the first floor of a three-family apartment on Central Street, where the woman and child lived.
