An 18-year-old West Main Street Road resident has been charged with reckless endangerment after allegedly firing a rifle into a wooded area this afternoon and nearly striking two people in an adjacent field.
Charged was Michael David Senay.
Senay is accused of firing a small caliber rifle at 4:15 p.m into a wooded area several times without having a safe backstop, causing rounds to travel a long distance.
The location was just off Wortendyke Road.
The original report indicated a subject had fired a high-powered rifle striking an ATV.
The alleged victims were on their own property.
The charge is a misdemeanor and Senay was issued an appearance ticket and directed to appear in the Town of Batavia Court at 1 p.m., June 7, to answer the charge.
The case was investigated by Deputy Patrick Reeves and Sgt. Steve Mullen.
