Maine officials are investigating bullets fired into a neighborhood that may have come from an Orrington gun club. A Penobscot County deputy sheriff said his office was awaiting video footage from the Orrington Rod and Gun Club’s surveillance system. The club is cooperating fully in the investigation, said Deputy Chad Young. Local landowner Jerry Perkins, who opens his 375 acres to snowmobiles and hunters and some commercial loggers, filed a complaint with local authorities. Perkins said a logger working on his property on Jan. 30 heard and saw bullets whizzing over his head while changing a tire on a log harvester. The logger told the Bangor Daily News that he feared he and his truck would be struck by a ricocheting bullet.
