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 .
