A Bullet at the beach. A scary situation at Sandy Beach left a mother scared for her children's lives. KITV4's Brenton Awa has the story new at ten. Saturday was just another day at the beach for Kayoko Sheffield and her family. The mother -- and her two children were out searching sandy beach for souvenirs. But instead of walking away with sea shells -- they took home the scare of their life. :34 - :39 KAYOKO SHEFFIELD "I REVERSING IT, PULL OUT THE CAR AND THEN I HEARD A BIG SOUND." Sheffield says that sound -- was a bullet going through the top of her car. It got stuck in panels of the roof. 1:49 "IT'S PRETTY SCARY, IF IT WENT THROUGH TIGHTEN UP IT'S GOING TO HIT ME PROBABLY." Sheffield says at first -- she thought she reversed into something. She checked her car but didn't notice the hole in her roof. While driving home... NATPOP OF POSSIBLE BULLET IN CAR - Just quick like 1- second She heard the bullet rattling around in the roof above her. That's when she called police. 3:23 "THE POLICE SAID IT'S A BULLET HOLE, MOST LIKELY A BULLET HOLE, AFTER I HEARD THAT I WAS SO SCARED." Sheffield believes the bullet came from the Koko head shooting range... But experts we spoke to say that's nearly impossible. 30:37 - 30:45 HARVEY GERWIG - PRESIDENT OF HAWAII RIFLE ASSOCIATION "I CAN'T PICTURE THAT HAPPENING, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE WAY UP IN THE AIR AND WAY TO THE RIGHT OF THE NORMAL TRAJECTORY OF THE RIFLE RANGE." The shooting range is about 55-hundred feet -- or just over a mile away from the parking lot at Sandy's. Some bullets CAN travel that distance ... But in this case -- experts say the angle at which a shooter would have to aim to get a bullet over the hill and to Sandy beach -- is just TOO great. Instead -- they say it could've been from gun-fire elsewhere... 31:16 - 31:20 "IT COULD'VE BEEN SOMEBODY CELEBRATING THE HOLIDAY UP AT QUEEN'S GATE SHOOTING UP IN THE AIR." Back at the beach -- people didn't seem to mind... 28:09 - 28:18 GEORGE TACUB - REGULAR AT SANDY'S "I BELIEVE IT'S AN ISOLATED INCIDENT. AS OF A SAFETY ISSUE, I THINK OUT THERE IS MORE OF A SAFETY ISSUE THAN WHAT'S FLYING AROUND OUT HERE." But Sheffield doesn't share their opinion... 2:40 "COMING BACK HERE, IT'S NOT SAFE, IT'S SCARY." Police have opened a reckless endangering case. They weren't able to get the bullet out of the roof of the mini- van. Instead - Kayoko Sheffield will have to take the bullet to police after mechanics remove it -- when repairing her car.
