EASTON, Pa. (AP) - An eastern Pennsylvania man was sentenced to one year of probation after admitting that he fired shots from the Stockertown Rod & Gun Club range into a nearby home.

Sixty-two-year-old Timothy Frey apologized for his actions as he pleaded guilty Monday in Northampton County to a disorderly conduct count.

The Nazareth man was initially charged in August with discharging a firearm into an occupied structure and two counts of recklessly endangering another person. The first charge was withdrawn by police and prosecutors dropped the others as part of Frey’s plea deal.

Police say the homeowner and her child had just left a bedroom before Frey’s bullet went through the home’s siding and into an interior wall.

The gun club raised its backstop in 2011 following complaints from neighbors.
