NORTH ATTLEBORO (CBS) – Residents of a neighborhood in North Attleboro say they’re living in fear, after two bullets have shot into homes there. The question is: did those bullets come from a nearby gun club?

“Never say never, but mathematically, I think it’s virtually impossible,” says Ted Oven, of the Angle Tree Stone Gun Club.

The shooting range is about 1,000 yards from the homes and it’s surrounded by 60-foot berms of earth. And the firing line has overhead steel plates, that prevents the shooter from aiming at the sky.

Nonetheless, Sunday morning, Chris White discovered a bullet hole in a bedroom window and the .45 caliber slug nearby. “I don’t want to shut them down, but why do they have bullets that go this far?”

The gun club has been around since 1924 but only recently received complaints. “Yes, two complaints in the past four months, police are trying to figure it out,” said Frank McLaughlin of the gun club.
