An afternoon riding dirt bikes with his daughter took an unexpected and dangerous twist last weekend for an Eastvale father when a stray bullet seemingly fell from the sky and struck him in the shoulder.
Reid Stadelman was riding along Hodge Road, near the 15 Freeway south of Barstow, when he felt a sudden pain.
Doctors ultimately removed a .308-caliber rifle bullet from his shoulder.
Stadelman told KTLA he did not hear the gunshot and did not know where it came from.
A remote area along Hodge Road just west of the 15 Freeway is popular for recreational shooting, though it was not clear if that is where the bullet originated.
