What sounded like thunder turned out to be something potentially far more dangerous for one Rapid City couple over the weekend. 
A couple living at 1309 Greenbriar street told police they were awakened by the sound of a bullet going through their bedroom window. Police responded to the report at approximately 2 am Saturday night. 
A neighbor living just across the street, at 1310 Greenbriar, admitted to accidentally firing his magnum .357 into his neighbors home. No one was injured. 
The incident is still under investigation. Although no one has been arrested yet, the neighbor could be charged with reckless discharge of a firearm.
What's your opinion? Does "could be charged" sound a little weak to you? Does "reckless discharge" sound a little weak to you.
It certainly does to me.
What's your opinion?  Please leave a comment.
