Neighbors object to suburban New York gun range

Posted: Updated:

GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - Some neighbors are objecting to a gun range in a pricey Westchester County residential area.

CBS New York (http://cbsloc.al/1r1nyCz ) says members of the Greenburgh Town Board planned to visit the Westchester Police Revolver and Rifle League property on Tuesday. They're considering new regulations for outdoor ranges.

The range is in a new subdivision where home prices start at $1.2 million.

Last month, a woman in her backyard was hit in the leg by a piece of metal.

Ballistics testing is under way to see if it's a bullet fragment. But an attorney for the range says that's not likely.

Robert Berkowitz says the firing ports are designed to stop stray bullets.

The gun range is temporarily closed.

The private range is not affiliated with a police agency.
