Christopher Killhullen is accused of shooting his high powered pellet gun over a fence after a dispute with a neighbor.
Police said that Killhullen was firing over a yard that contained several adults and children. They say he is a convicted felon, but is allowed to own a pellet gun. Firing the gun, however, is illegal.
Killhullen has a previous felony conviction for robbery that also involved a weapon. He was also out on bail in an unrelated incident from summer 2013 when a Rensselaer police officer claims Killhullen refused to lower a pellet pistol.
Killhullen was charged with one count of criminal possession of a weapon in the third, one count of criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth, seven counts of reckless endangerment in the second, seven counts of menacing in the second, and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
