Stray Bullets Lead To Cease Fire At Scituate Rod And Gun Club

SCITUATE (CBS) - A cease fire has been ordered at the Scituate Rod and Gun club.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Carl Stevens reports


Plymouth County Superior Court Charles Hely issued a permanent injunction Wednesday ruling that no one can fire a rifle or pistol on the club property.

Neighbors had complained about stray bullets striking their homes.

In one case, a bullet zipped through the window of a house just a few feet from the homeowner.

"Judge Hely knows that the bullets came from the gun club and he's never going to let the gun club endanger its neighbors again," Dan Dwyer, the attorney for the neighbors, told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Thursday.

The judge also awarded damages to some of those homeowners ranging from $1,000 to $6,000.

Members of the club say they are not completely to blame.

They say hunting regulations may be too lax.

The club was established in 1929.
