STOCKERTOWN, Pa. (AP) - The district attorney is trying to determine whether stray bullets that have hit homes in one eastern Pennsylvania community are coming from a nearby gun club.

Officials with the Stockertown Rod & Gun Club didn’t immediately return a call Wednesday on the investigation begun by Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli.

The prosecutor wants state police ballistics experts to examine the shooting range and bullets that have hit some nearby homes.

The DA wants to know whether the range is safe, or whether changes need to be made to keep bullets from escaping the shooting range.

The DA says gun club members could face criminal charges of reckless endangerment if it’s determined the bullets came from their range.



Stockertown is about 65 miles north of Philadelphia.
