A drunken night in Killarney nearly turned deadly Thursday.

Officers from the Noelville and Sudbury Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) detachments as well as members of the OPP’s Emergency Response Team and K-9 unit, converged upon a residence on Charles Street in Killarney at approximately 10:20 p.m. April 10, after receiving a call involving a firearm.

Police investigation revealed a shotgun was discharged by an intoxicated male through the living room window of a Charles Street home from a neighbouring residence.

The incident ended peacefully and without any injuries early this morning, and as a result, police have arrested and charged a 44-year-old Killarney man with careless use of a firearm, improper storage of a firearm and unauthorized possession of a firearm.

Police said the incident was isolated and the man poses no danger to public safety.
