A bullet was fired into a crowded Australian mosque, narrowly missing worshippers, police said Saturday. No one was hurt in the shooting Friday evening at the mosque in the west coast city of Perth, where 400 Muslims had gathered to observe the first week of Ramadan, Western Australia state police Inspector Neville Patterson said. "A single shot was fired from a high-powered rifle from outside the mosque through a window on the second level, narrowly missing a couple of worshippers," Patterson said. The gunman, who fled in an SUV, has not been identified, he said.
