— While on patrol near the Home Savings on West Lincoln Way, Lisbon, deputies found two men leaning over an elderly woman sitting in the gutter with her legs folded beneath her and another woman there helping them. Donna Jackson, a new resident at the Vista Center, needed to go to the bank and her son, Larry Heaton, had made arrangements for Charles Corbett to pick them up and take them to the bank. On the way back to the van, Jackson had gotten to the curb and collapsed into the gutter. She said she was not in pain. Lt. Allan Young and Chief Deputy Kip Dowling lifted her to her feet and into the back seat of the van. She seemed very tired and showing other signs of fatigue, so KLG was called to check her vital signs. She was then taken back to the nursing facility by Heaton.

Deputies talked to the man, who said the neighbor was shooting a gun and the man did not feel the neighbor should be shooting so close to his property. Deputies went to the neighbor’s house and to the son of the neighbor, who was visiting, recently bought a firearm and was shooting it in his dad’s backyard. He told deputies he was finished shooting.

— Someone next door to the Burtzl and Outfitters range reported at 2 p.m. Monday people were shooting there unsafely and the rounds were ricocheting around his property.

Deputies went to the business to speak with the employee working at the time. She showed deputies the range, which had targets positioned in front of a mound of dirt about 35 to 40 feet high. The targets were lower than the bench so rounds should be going slightly downward. It did not seem clear how the rounds could be ricocheting the way the neighbor described.
