A 73-year-old woman who was struck by a stray bullet while sitting in her kitchen has died.

Investigators say the bullet entered her home off Dunn Road in Riley Township, Michigan on Sunday afternoon.

Detectives told Scripps station WXYZ in Detroit a neighbor was shooting target practice at the time. They believe he may have missed a large pile of dirt he was trying to hit.

They have seized at least two rifles from his home.

The woman was rushed to the hospital where she later died.

Her name is not being released. 

Charges may come as early as Monday morning.
