Woman Charged After Bullets Strike Neighbor's Home


WASHINGTON, Pa.,None - Police have charged a 54-year-old woman after a man discovered two bullet holes in his Washington home that appeared to come from a neighbor's house.

Randy Ardeno called police after finding the holes in his Wellington Avenue home on Friday.

His neighbor Janet Pabian was charged Monday after police said she fired a handgun, which resulted in Ardeno's house being shot up.

Ardeno's wife, Tracy, said the bullet struck the house close to where their 14-year-old daughter sleeps.

"He was like, ‘Somebody shot at our house.' I was like, 'No,'" said Tracy Ardeno.

According to police, Pabian admitted that she was handling the .38-caliber handgun when it accidentally discharged a three times.

"(My husband) says I keep screaming in my sleep. I can't help it. I mean, I just think about, what if she was home?" Tracy Ardeno said. "She shot three bullets. We don't know how. Where's the other?"

Pabian is charged with reckless endangerment, among other charges.
