Charges held in deer shooting from Wal-Mart lot
BLAIRSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - May 2, 2013 (WPVI) -- A western Pennsylvania man who allegedly shot a deer from a busy Wal-Mart parking lot on the first day of rifle season last year has been ordered to stand trial on reckless endangerment and state game charges.
Forty-year-old Arcangelo "Angelo" Bianco Jr., of Derry Township, would say only, "The truth will come out" after his preliminary hearing Thursday in Blairsville.
Wildlife conservation officers say Bianco fired several shots in the parking lot, causing trailers being unloaded by employees to be spattered with deer blood. Bianco allegedly continued shooting at the fleeing deer, which he retrieved from the side of Route 22 opposite the store, about 45 miles east of Pittsburgh.
Among other things, authorities say Bianco violated the law by firing a weapon within 150 yards of an occupied structure - violating a state "safety zone" law.
