Bail revoked for Rensselaer man charged in pellet gun incident

Posted:

RENSSELAER, N.Y. -- Bail for a Rensselaer man accused of shooting a pellet gun at his neighbors was revoked Thursday.

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.
