13. A bullet that bounced off the siding has to have been fired from a very long distance.
Even a weak rifle bullet will penetrate siding from anything approaching normal range. If it was fired from long distance (say half a mile for a .223 Remington, a mile or more for .308 or 30-06) then the likelihood that it was someone intending to shoot at his family as Dobbs claimed is basically zero.
