Target shooters warned to find safer gun range

Deputies contacted people shooting targets in an open field near the intersection of Outlook and Spike roads near Outlook and told them to find a safer place to practice shooting after neighbors complained yesterday morning.

Also on Monday, deputies investigated a hit and run accident near the intersection of Bethany Road and Alexander Extension. A Benton REA power pole was damaged.

A homeowner in the 1100 block of Randel Road near Sunnyside reported yesterday morning that a sliding door was knocked off its frame sometime overnight.

Deputies also received a report of gunshots in the 400 block of Fern Road near Mabton last night, and also a report of a vehicle attempting to run over the shooter. However, when deputies arrived on scene, there was no evidence of a problem and the person who reported the incident could not be located.

Since yesterday morning deputies have also found lost property, conducted a welfare check, dealt with a traffic hazard, handled an animal problem, responded to an automatic alarm, investigated a report of suspicious activity, provided assistance to another agency and handled a report of a court order violation.
