DEXTER, Maine — Two men were summoned earlier this week after a bullet landed within feet of a woman sitting in her house, according to police.

Dexter police were called to a residence on Garland Road at 1:55 p.m. Sunday after the homeowner said a bullet entered her house, said Dexter Police Chief Kevin Wintle on Friday.

“The bullet went through several walls and landed in the living room, where she was sitting,” said Wintle. “It missed her by an estimated three feet.”

During their investigation, police Officers Louis Durgin and Jeremy Wintle visited a camp on Chickadee Lane, Wintle said.

“They located two male subjects. They admitted to shooting multiple shots for target practice,” said Wintle, adding that the men were shooting in the direction of Garland Road.

Multiple guns, including a .44-magnum rifle, were confiscated.

Cory A. Ouellette, 33, of Orono and Christopher Dempsey, 24, of Topsham were both summoned for reckless conduct with a firearm, a Class C felony.

Both are scheduled to appear in Penobscot County Superior Court in Bangor on Nov. 15.
