PA: Hunter Facing Charges After Bullet Hits Home In Leet Township

November 30, 2012

From Pittsburgh.CBSLocal.com

LEET TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — The shot rang out just before noon on Thursday.
“This is where the bullet entered,” Pamela Call, of Leet Township, said while pointing out where the shot went into the home.
“It came in through here; then, it came down this way,” Phillip Call, Pamela’s husband, said as he showed the path the bullet took in the home.
The slug from the hunter’s shotgun passed through the bedroom into the bathroom, and then through the bathroom door before hitting the molding in the hallway.
“I was on my way to the restroom, but the plumber asked me a question so I stopped,” said Phillip Call. “If I had gone on to the restroom the bullet would have hit me.”
“There’s a guy out there hunting with a weapon, a high-powered weapon. He’s being careless. He’s not being a responsible,” Call said. “I couldn’t even sleep in my bedroom last night.”
William Krueger, 66, of Sewickley, is charged with firing into the state-mandated, 150-yard safety zone and destruction of property. That carries a $1,000 fine and the cost of repairs.
