Stray Bullet That Struck North Side Home Came From Fish And Game Range - No Charges Expected

 
 
LETHBRIDGE:  The person responsible for firing a gun that caused a bullet to pierce the roof of a north side home last month will not be charged.

Regional Police were called to a north-side home around 1:46 on February 15th, for a report that a bullet had come through the roof of a home along the 2300 block of 13 Street North.

The occupants of the home heard a bang and when they went to check on the noise found a hole in their ceiling and a bullet on the floor. No one was injured.

Shortly after the incident, Police went to the Lethbridge Fish and Game Range along Riverbottom Road North, and found two men who were target shooting with pistols at the time of the incident. Both men cooperated and voluntarily provided their ammunition and firearms to police for examination.

Following interviews with the subjects as well as a review of the security footage, it was determined that a 31-year-old male inadvertently fired a Smith and Wesson .45 caliber pistol while the barrel was pointed upwards allowing the bullet to leave the range and clear the safety berm.

Ballistics testing conducted by a member of the Calgary Police Service Firearms Unit confirmed that the bullet recovered from the home was fired from the Smith and Wesson pistol the 31-year-old was using at the Fish and Game Range.

After consulting with the Crown Prosecutor’s office, the man’s actions were deemed non-criminal and the case has been concluded without criminal charges.
