Chicago police are trying to determine if a bullet that went through a downtown hotel was from a shooting near the Taste of Chicago on July 3. Chris Grissom and his family from Tennessee were staying at Hotel Blake on South Dearborn. He posted video of the bullet holes in his hotel room at on the internet site You Tube.

They were watching TV when they say they heard what they thought was a firecracker. Then they noticed plaster dust from a bullet coming through the wall.

"If I had been standing in the path of the bullet it would have hit me in the head," said Chris Grissom.

Grissom says he posted the video online because it was a surreal experience.
