MADISON, Wis. (WGHP) — A sleeping toddler owes their life to a ‘Baby Shark’ doll after a stray bullet came through the wall, according to police in Madison, Wisconsin.

At about 8:42 p.m. Sunday, officers responded to a home on the 4500-block of Cottage Grove Road in Madison, Wisconsin.

Officers said they believe a firefight took place after they found 45 shell casings and damage to two vehicles and nearby buildings.
