MONTVILLE TOWNSHIP, Ohio – Two men are under arrest after their target shooting with an AK-47 assault weapon sent bullets flying through a Medina County neighborhood Wednesday afternoon.
One Parnham Drive resident, unaware of the hail of bullets, scurried back into her home as police arrived to warn her and her two small children of the danger, another homeowner ran to her basement.
Montville Township police found themselves dodging bullets as they tracked down where the shots were originating.
“When I get about a half mile back in the field up on a hill, gunfire started again, and started hearing rounds go over my head,” said Montville Police Sgt. Matt Neil.
Police said the men on Windfall Road were shooting at a target in a field with handguns and an AK-47.
“They were drinking alcohol, they had some drugs on them and they were just outside, in their backyard shooting paper targets,” Neil said. “They felt because they were shooting at a downward angle, that it would have been OK.”
Bullets skipped off the ground, and carried over hills striking at least two homes police estimated to be a 500 yards from where the target shooting took place.
Mark Bornino, 53, of Windall Road in Montville Township and R. Daniel Volpone, 45, of Parma were arrested.
