Two men have been charged following an incident that occurred Saturday afternoon at Missouri Valley, Iowa, when a shotgun slug was fired into an occupied home while deer hunting.
Stephen Kenkel, 64, of Grinnell was charged with one count of shooting over a roadway and one count of shooting within 200 yards of an inhabited building. Gail C. Lamberson, 52, of Logan was charged with one count of shooting within 200 yards of an inhabited building.
The incident occurred when deer were crossing the roadway between Kenkel and the house and Kenkel shot at the deer. The shot went through a wall eventually lodged in a ceiling inside the house. The house was occupied at the time, but no one was injured.
