On Friday, February 7, 2020 at 2325 hours, Officer Pete Papadopoulos was called to the area of the 1700 block of Valley Forge Road, Lancaster for criminal mischief not in progress. Upon the Officer's arrival, it was learned that someone had discharged a firearm into the victim's home. The Officer was shown a bullet hole in the wall of the exterior wall and the bullet continued through another wall and the spent round was laying on the floor of a bedroom. There was a 45 caliber bullet on the floor. The house was occupied at the time of the shot. Physical evidence directed the Officer to a home just behind the victim's home. The homeowner behind the victim was identified as James Schelling, 73, Lancaster. Officers on dayshift made contact with Schelling and they saw that there was a hole in Schelling's curtain consistent with the size of a 45 caliber. They also learned that Schelling owned a Kimber 911 45 caliber handgun. Officer Papadopoulos interviewed Schelling and learned that late in the evening on Friday February 7, 2020 Schelling accidentally discharged his weapon when he was trying to load it. Schelling did not call the police because he was embarrassed because he is prior military and is basically blind and did not want to draw attention to himself. Based on the Officer's investigation he is charging Schelling with discharging weapon into an occupied structure and recklessly endangering another person. Schelling retained an attorney and is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges on March 25, 2020 at 0900 hours.
