Man practicing with gun puts hole in neighbor's TV

Submitted By AP Wire Service

HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP), May 13 - An Oregon man practicing his Old West-style quick-draw skills with a handgun put a hole in a life-sized poster of a 1970's mob movie icon and destroyed a neighbor's flat-screen TV in the bargain.

KGW-TV reports police took 27-year-old Travis Hood of Hillsboro, Ore., into custody after the shooting in which he blasted a hole in the poster of Al Pacino in his role as Michael Corleone in "The Godfather" films.

The bullet traveled through the wall of his apartment and hit a neighbor's television. Police say Hood used a .357 magnum.

No one was in the other apartment, and there were no injuries.

Hood was charged with reckless endangerment and criminal mischief. It was unclear on Thursday afternoon whether Hood had hired an attorney.
