Man charged after allegedly shooting bedroom window while hunting

HARTLAND, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Niagara County man has been accused of shooting a bedroom window while hunting Sunday morning.

Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a home on Hosmer Rd. in Hartland after a caller reported a shot fired at her window while she was in the room.

Deputies learned that the caller heard four or five shots, but just one struck the window.

No one was injured.

Authorities spoke with a group of hunters across the street and arrested Ransomville resident John Duxbury.

Duxbury, 48, was charged with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and discharging a weapon over a public highway.

Duxbury was released on appearance tickets and will reappear in court next month. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
