PELHAM, N.H. (AP) - A man hunting deer in Pelham, New Hampshire, has been charged with reckless conduct after a round from his 12-gauge shotgun went through a house, narrowly missing a couple sitting in their living room.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1DFM4BH) 25-year-old Michael Crooker of Pelham knocked on the couple’s door and apologized Monday for shooting at their home. Police said he had attempted to shoot a deer in the woods behind his house, but missed.

Crooker also was charged with shooting a firearm within 300 feet of an occupied dwelling, unlawful use of a firearm, negligent discharge of a firearm and hunting deer with a firearm after the season was over.

It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.
