Port Orchard Man Cited for Accidentally Firing Gun in Motel


A stray bullet that ripped its way through three motel rooms in Bend, Ore., is alleged to have come from the gun of a Port Orchard man. David Baker, 46, accidentally fired his .40-caliber handgun in his own room at the motel, local authorities told TV station KTVZ.

Thankfully, no one was hurt at the motel, on the 700 block of NE Third Street. But police told the TV station that Baker was cited for reckless endangerment and second-degree criminal mischief, as well as unlawful discharge of a firearm in the city limits.

The bullet came to rest on a desk chair in the third room, police said.
