Firefighter and Police Officers’ target practice ‘misjudgment’ leads to arrest

SHARE


Bullets started flying, hitting several homes in Bradley County, Tennessee, leading to the arrest of a South Florida police officer and firefighter.

The two women were staying with Christopher Majeske, in early June, when the trio decided to do some target practice in the middle of the night.

12 bullet holes in all were found on nearby property. Frightened residents inside the three different homes that were hit recalled the terrifying experience.

“This was like a nightmare. It felt like we weren’t safe,” Majeske’s neighbor said. “It felt like any minute one of us could have gotten shot.”

One of the homes had a 6-year-old boy inside, who told the local ABC affiliate that he was too afraid to go back to his house.

Majeske and his two guests were shooting with an AR-15 rifle and two pistols on the other side of the woods from the three houses that were struck by bullets.

When deputies arrived on scene more gunshots were heard and they ordered residents to evacuate.

CeJay Hammack– a patrol officer for Plantation City Police, and Majeske were both charged with aggravated reckless endangerment because they’d also been drinking at the time.

According to local10 news, Stefanie Silk– a Ft Lauderdale firefighter and paramedic– was charged with reckless endangerment.

Majeske told News Channel 9 that this was all an accident- a misjudgment- on their part. They didn’t know the homes were on the other side of the woods.
