GRAND JUNCTION, Colo (KKCO) It happened around 11 am Saturday morning. Kristy Leino says she was outside of her home on 15th when her daughter noticed an arrow in their pool. She says it's a metal arrow, and it could have killed her two year old or five year old kids if they had been in the pool. Now she wants some answers.

"This is my home. I have my kids out here playing on their playset, everything else out here; can I have my kids out here and be safe? Now I'm going to question that big time because was this intentional or was this an accident? I don't know, but I'm going to definitely be wondering if I'm safe in my own yard anymore," says Leino.

Leino says the Grand Junction Police Department responded to the incident, but said it will be difficult to trace the person who shot it because of the distance an arrow can travel.
