ORRINGTON — Maine officials are investigating stray bullets fired into a neighborhood that may have come from an Orrington gun club.
A Penobscot County deputy sheriff says his office is awaiting video footage from the Orrington Rod and Gun Club’s surveillance system.
Deputy Chad Young says the club is cooperating fully in the investigation.
Authorities are investigating a complaint filed by local landowner Jerry Perkins, who opens his 375 acres to snowmobiles and hunters and some commercial loggers.
Perkins says a logger working on his property Jan. 30 heard and saw bullets whizzing over his head while changing a tire on a log harvester.
The logger told the Bangor Daily News that he feared he and his truck would be struck by a ricocheting bullet.
