BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Two Billings men face criminal charges after a bullet fired by one of them during target practice narrowly missed a woman who was peeling potatoes.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1kioEIr ) 40-year-old Terry McCurdy and 39-year-old Douglas Johnson appeared in Justice Court Friday on negligent endangerment charges.

Charging documents say the woman was standing at her kitchen sink on May 15 when she and her husband heard a loud pop. They spotted a hole in the kitchen wall and found a bullet on the floor.

Court records say the couple heard more gunshots and called 911.

Two Yellowstone County deputies reported a bullet struck the cabinet about a foot above where the woman had been standing.



Deputies located McCurdy and Johnson about 800 yards away. They had two guns and ammunition with them.
