Rock Or Meteorite? Strange Object Crashes Through Roof Of Local Business

MERCER, Pa. (KDKA) -- There is a mystery surrounding a strange-looking rock that came crashing through the ceiling of a Mercer County business.

It happened sometime late Thursday night or early Friday morning.

Employees of the business discovered the shiny, sharp-looking object inside their warehouse Friday morning.

They also found an eight-inch by eight-inch hole in the building's 30-foot high, steel roof where the object came into the building.

The object left a nice dent in the building's cement floor where it landed, too.

The owner of the company says he believes the rock could be a meteorite.

However, there's been no official word as to exactly what the object is.
