A bullet pierced the window of a classroom at Akili Academy in the 9th Ward Monday afternoon, according to the New Orleans Police Department.

Police were called out to the intersection of Desire and N. Galvez just before 1 p.m. to investigate a report of someone shot. Officers were unable to locate a victim or any evidence of a victim at the scene.

Through the course of the investigation, officers located a bullet that had struck a window at nearby Akili Academy at 3811 North Galvez Street.
