OH: Hunter indicted; charged after bullet enters North Lima home, hits resident



A Sebring man was indicted Thursday in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court on a felony charge of discharging a firearm on or near prohibited premises, accused of firing the weapon in a restricted area of North Lima in December while hunting.

The area where Kasen J. Smith, 25, of Lake Park Boulevard, is accused of firing is off limits to discharging a firearm because of its proximity to Market Street and a nursing home, prosecutors said.

Smith also is indicted on misdemeanor “injured persons or property while hunting,” hunting without permission and violating hunting ordinances.

If convicted of some of the charges, Smith could get more than 10 years in prison.
