Gun range hearing to resume Monday

Posted by wlpo on April 25, 2012

Even the court system has sick days.  After the lead attorney for the Buffalo Range Shooting Park called in sick Wednesday, the hearing on the controversial gun range was postponed until Monday.  Before the lawyer was sick, it was expected the defense would call its final witnesses Wednesday.  The state rested its case Tuesday.

Testimony about a state injunction keeping the gun range closed has been going since earlier this month.  The state claims stray bullets from the range have just missed hitting several people at either Buffalo Rock State Park or along the I&M Canal trail.  Officials with the gun range say the errant bullets are coming from somewhere else.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
