LOCAL 8 WEATHER ALERT: A Flash Flood Watch is in effect Saturday morning through Sunday morning at 8AM for the Valley, Smokies, and NE TN, including Knoxville. Heavy rainfall at times on Saturday, plus run-off from the mountains, can lead to flooding issues. TADD - turn around, don't drown. Assume high water on a road is not passable.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) --- If the house was fifty feet closer to the street it wouldn't be an issue.
But Oscar Lopez is scared and angry.
His neighbor came home to a bullet hole. A shot fired through her window, her wall and a door before landing in her hallway.
It likely came from a backyard shooting range, and because of that fact police can't do anything about the wayward shot.
If a shooting range is in County property and follows a short set of guidelines than its owner is essentially not liable for any criminal or civil charges.
The only thing that is illegal is shooting another person.
Its a law that has Oscar rethinking everything. "As of this week, I'm looking to move." He tells us.
While Oscar might move, the law likely won't. It was written in 2008.
