Saturday Morning: Man Charged In Shotgun Incident
Bryant G. Jones was trying to hit the racoon he spotted, that much is clear.
But Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies said Jones managed to shoot something else with pellets from a shotgun - a house.
Jones, who is 23 and lists his residence as 4th Armor Division Road, Fort Drum, was charged early Saturday with reckless endangerment, second degree, and prohibited use of a firearm, both misdemeanors.
Deputies said Jones was riding on Michaels Road in the Town of Adams a little after 11 Friday night when he saw the animal. According to the paperwork they issued, he fired a 12 guage shotgun three or four times "and some of the shotgun pellets did strike a residence at 17529 Michaels Road where people were home inside the residence."
Jones was issued tickets, told to come back to court later this month.
