Accidental Shooting Rattles Neighborhood
Law enforcement responded in full force on Saturday, March 29, when a caller reported a bullet coming through a Glasgow area living room wall and lodging into the wall across the room.
Valley County Sheriff Glen Meier said the Sheriff’s Office responded quickly to the location on Highway 2 West near the El Cor Del bowling lanes. Meier explained that they did a thorough sweep of the area and interviewed several people to find out where the shot came from.
Later in the evening it was determined that a juvenile had been playing with a firearm and it traveled around two-fifths of a mile. The young man confessed to the incident.
Meier explained that it was not intentional, but the boy will probably be facing some charges as the investigation continues.
