Bullet meant for squirrel hits boy's room
May 16, 2006. 01:00 AM
A Mississauga man who allegedly shot at a squirrel in his yard with a .22-calibre rifle and missed is facing charges after a stray bullet slammed into a neighbouring child's bedroom.
While no one was in the room at the time, Lisa Murphy said the incident could have killed or wounded her 11-year-old son Connor.
"It's a Saturday morning and kids tend to sleep late," she said yesterday, adding the bullet sailed over his bed, skipped off the ceiling and lodged itself in a wall. "Thank God nobody was hurt."
Murphy was at home on Arvida Circle, near Winston Churchill Blvd. and Derry Rd., at about 9:30 a.m., when she heard a loud noise from the next room.
When she and her husband checked out the room together, they noticed a small hole in the wall. "You could tell — it looked like a little explosion and there were pieces of drywall sticking out," Murphy said.
Michael Joseph Popowich, 62, faces charges of careless use of a firearm, weapons dangerous, unauthorized possession of a firearm and careless storage of a firearm. He is to appear in court June 15.
