NANUET A 21-year-old man claiming he was hunting deer from the roof of a Cottage Place house was arrested Saturday morning after, police said, he fired five blasts from a shotgun.

Shashi Ramsaroop told officers he climbed to his roof from a second-floor window when he saw deer congregating in the backyard of the single-family house at 31 Cottage Place, (Clarkstown Sgt. Steven Chernick)said.

Police charged Ramsaroop with misdemeanor counts of second-degree reckless endangerment and prohibited use of weapon, which was applied because a weapon was discharged within 500 feet of a neighboring house.
Police also charged Ramsaroop with prohibition on the use and possession of a firearm and illegal hunting, both under state Environmental Conservation law. He also was charged with violating Clarkstown code by discharging a firearm within the town.
