OLIVE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- The Ottawa County Prosecutors will determine if a man will be charged for firing a stray bullet that hit a home.

The bullet traveled about three quarters of a mile from the gaming area on 112th Avenue into the living room of a house on Port Sheldon Street Tuesday evening.

The two people inside the home were not hurt. Deputies found a man in his late 20s at the gaming area who told them he was sighting a rifle and fired a shot, but couldn't tell where he was shooting.

"It is legal to shoot in that particular venue, but again it has to be done in a safer manner and were his actions within the law, and that's what we'll be looking at," says Lt. Mark bennett of the Ottawa Co. Sheriff's Department.

"They ought to put a sign up here that says no rifles. If it was just shotguns and bebee and pellets it wouldnt be a a problem," says neighbor Garry Teall.

Investigators say stray bullets from the gaming area have also hit other properties in the area, including a barn and a garage.
