ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - Police say a Vermont man instructing his cousin on how to handle a firearm accidentally discharged the gun, sending a bullet into his neighbor’s bathtub.

The Caledonian Record reports (https://bit.ly/2kQbc2b) police said 33-year-old Shawn Young, of St. Johnsbury, pleaded not guilty to reckless endangerment on Monday, but then expressed a desire at arraignment to settle the charge. A change of plea hearing was scheduled for Feb. 27.

Police said the incident happened in November.

The neighbor, 68-year-old Christine Oliver, showed police a hole in her bedroom and part of the wall. The bullet was found in her bathtub. She wasn’t hurt.
