Man cited after police say he fired pellet gun from apartment balcony

ELYRIA — An Elyria man was issued a citation after police say he was firing a pellet gun from the balcony of his apartment into some woods.

Alexander Bogle, 20, is charged with discharging firearms.

Officers were called to the area of 1877 Turner Blvd. about 7:30 Saturday night, according to a police report.

A witness told police she lives in the apartment directly below Bogle and that her two daughters were outside playing behind the apartment building. She said she heard numerous popping sounds and quickly brought her daughters inside.

Police found Bogle and another man on the balcony and found the Daisy Powerline carbon dioxide handgun in a living room closet underneath a flannel shirt.

Police confiscated the gun and gave Bogle a court date of today.
