MONROVIA, Calif. (AP) - Prosecutors have charged a man allegedly caught on camera shooting a deer with a bow and arrow within a suburban foothill community in Southern California.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Monday that Michael Rodriguez faces charges including discharge of a deadly weapon within 150 yards of an occupied dwelling and possession of wildlife taken unlawfully. It wasn’t immediately known if Rodriguez has an attorney.

A homeowner in Monrovia said his surveillance camera recorded footage showing a man shooting the deer near his house in September.

Rodriguez said at the time that he’s the hunter in the footage. He told KCBS-TV he shot the deer in a hunting zone above Monrovia but it didn’t die. He said he followed the animal to the residential area so he could kill it.
