Gun Range Deal In Place

Posted by wlpo on May 1, 2012

Parts of the Buffalo Range Shooting Park could reopen this week.

After several hours of negotiations yesterday, lawyers for the gun range and the Illinois Attorney General’s Office said they hammered out an agreement to open some parts of the gun range.  Circuit Judge Eugene Daugherity is expected to rule on the agreement tomorrow in downtown Ottawa.

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.
