Two Yorktown brothers are facing felony charges after they shot in the direction of two hunters who wandered on their private property while tracking an injured deer, Yorktown police said.
Richard Padovani, 45 and Ronald Padovani, 46, were charged with first-degree reckless endangerment, a felony.
The Padovani brothers were arrested on Friday, Nov. 9 after they shot at the two hunters, who wandered on their property at 980 Chapman Road while tracking an injured deer.
Police allege the men shot numerous rounds from a shotgun and rifle in the direction of the hunters to scare them off. The firearms were located at the residence and turned over to the police.
No one was injured and no charges were pressed against the hunters, police said.
The Padovani brothers were released on $1,500 cash bail and were scheduled to appear in Yorktown Town Court on Nov. 13.
