NAZARETH, Pa. (AP) - An eastern Pennsylvania group has closed its shooting range two weeks after a prosecutor announced he’s investigating whether stray bullets were hitting homes from another club a couple miles away.

Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli announced earlier this month that he’s trying to determine whether the stray bullets are coming from the Stockertown Rod & Gun Club.

That investigation is still ongoing, but now WFMZ-TV (https://bit.ly/1Ps6HmH ) is reporting that the Edelman Belfast Sportsman Club has shut down its range. The ranges are about two-and-a-half miles apart, some 65 miles north of Philadelphia.

Officials with the Edelman Belfast club haven’t responded to the television station and didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press early Wednesday.

Neighbors say they’ve complained about stray bullets from that club, too, but nothing’s ever been proven.
