Hunter charged after shooting house

Maryland Natural Resources Police 12/01/10

A Frederick man has been charged with negligent hunting for allegedly striking a house with a shotgun slug while deer hunting.

Sgt. Art Windemuth, spokesman for the Maryland Natural Resources Police, said 51-year-old Raymond D. Weeks was firing at a deer running across a field on Saturday when one of his shotgun slugs hit the house on the 7900 block of Jackson Court in Frederick.

Weeks also charged with violating Maryland's safety-zone law, which prohibits people from hunting within 150 yards of an occupied structure without permission from the residents. Windemuth said Weeks was about 114 yards from the house when he was hunting.

A house on the 8300 block of Water Street in Walkersville was also hit Saturday. Windemuth said the incidents are not related .
