A “Baby Shark” doll narrowly saved the life of a toddler after absorbing a stray bullet that ripped through the walls of her family’s Milwaukee home on Sunday, according to police.

The Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) said the 3-year-old girl was sleeping in her crib when a gunfight erupted outside around 8:42 p.m. on Sunday.

Investigators discovered 45 shell casings in the area, indicating “there were two sides shooting at one another,” the MPD said in an incident report.

The bullets hit parked cars and multiple homes, prompting residents to seek shelter, police said. One of the bullets entered the toddler’s bedroom where she slept, missing her by inches, according to police.
