Pennsylvania Fired Into Neighbor's Home to Unload Gun

George Byrd IV


Police in Pennsylvania say a man accused of shooting a bullet through a neighbor's window told a judge he fired the gun because it was the only way he knew how to unload it.
Middletown Detective Patrick Nicastro tells the Bucks County Courier Times ( that 31-year-old George Byrd IV of Penndel at first denied being behind the shooting but then acknowledged during his arraignment that he fired the weapon to clear the chamber because he was unfamiliar with guns.
Authorities say Byrd fired the gun early Friday afternoon in the suburban Philadelphia community. No one was injured.
Byrd is being held in the Bucks County jail on $20,000 bond. No attorney is listed on court papers.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 8.


  1. Those darn felons. At least you cant fault his honesty, even though he seems to be dumber than a box of rocks.

    "A 31-year-old convicted felon accused of firing a bullet that broke a neighbor’s window allegedly claimed he fired the gun because it was the only way he knew how to unload it."

    Or maybe not so honest. He seems to have a nice collection for supposedly being unfamiliar with guns,

    "Police searched his home and found a .357 revolver, a 12-gauge double barrel shotgun and an M77 long rifle, according to the Bucks County Courier Times."

    1. That does sound like a pretty unlikely excuse.

  2. As this site proves to many gun loons don't know the first thing about guns and end up hurting and killing people.
