JERSEY CITY, NJ (PIX11) – A mother in Jersey City is in the hospital Monday, after getting struck by a stray bullet inside her own apartment.

Cops say the 26-year-old woman was in her bedroom watching TV when she was hit.

They say the bullet was fired from outside her home on Old Bergen Road.

Heavily armed swat team members surrounded the apartment believing they had a suspect cornered inside, that proved not to be the case.

In the end, no arrests were made and no one else was injured.
