A Boardman man accidentally shot his firearm while inside his apartment on Rockdale Avenue on Saturday night. The bullet hit his television and traveled to a neighboring apartment. A neighbor discovered the slug Monday.
The neighbor told police he heard a popping sound while he was watching TV Saturday night. His TV signal was lost, and he couldn’t figure out why. After further investigation, police talked to the apartment’s maintenance supervisor and found out there was a TV in its box in a Dumpster that had holes in it. It was taken into evidence, and police told the tenant to give police the gun until the investigation was complete.
