A Taneytown man will serve 10 days in jail after being convicted of reckless endangerment for firing a gun that lodged a bullet inside a nearby home.
Antonino Fama, 55, of the 200 block of Carroll Heights Road, pleaded not guilty but agreed not to challenge the state's version of the facts to one count of reckless endangerment Monday.
Judge Michael M. Galloway sentenced Fama to one year in jail with all but 10 days suspended to begin July 27.
Taneytown police responded on July 6, 2014, to a residence on George Street for a report of a bullet fired into a residence, according to the statement of facts read into the record by Senior Assistant State's Attorney Melissa Hockensmith.
After canvassing the area, police were directed to Fama's residence where they spoke with Fama and he said he did not hear a gunshot and had no guns in the house, according to Hockensmith.
