Gunfire in arguement leads to charges

A local man was arrested last Thursday after he allegedly fired a shot from a handgun following an argument with subjects inside his home.

Charles P. Kendall, 42, of Whitehall, is accused of firing a round from a handgun into a floor in the house.

According to witnesses, Kendall became upset with some people at the home, went into a bedroom, got the handgun and fired a shot into the floor around 11:30 p.m. No one was injured.

Kendall then left the home and was found walking on Broadway a short time later. He was arrested without incident.

During the subsequent investigation, police located the handgun reportedly used by Kendall, as well as a semi-automatic SKS rifle, which is similar to an AK-47.

Kendall was charged third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a felony, as well as second-degree reckless endangerment, a misdemeanor. Additional charges are pending.

He was arraigned Whitehall Village Court and remanded to the Washington County Correctional Facility for lack of bail.

The case was handled by Whitehall Police Department patrolmen Eric Baurle and Richard Rizzo, who were assisted at the scene by Washington County sheriffs and state police personnel.
