Man allegedly fires gun into home wall

After arguing for several hours with his girlfriend, Rudy A. Palomo-Paez fired a small-caliber rifle into the wall of his apartment, police said.

A woman and her grandson who were asleep on the other side of the wall in the trajectory of the bullet were not injured.

Palomo-Paez, 35, of the 200 block of Northeast Drive, was charged Thursday with one felony count of criminal recklessness.

Police were called Saturday to Palomo-Paez’s apartment and learned he had been arguing with his girlfriend for several hours.

He later got a .22-caliber rifle and fired it into a wall of the apartment, a probable cause affidavit said.

Palomo-Paez’s 3-year-old daughter and his girlfriend’s 14-year-old sister were in the apartment at the time, according to the affidavit.

Police found the bullet traveled about 4 feet off the ground at a downward angle through the east wall of the apartment, directly at the woman and her grandson asleep in the adjacent apartment.

Palomo-Paez was being held Thursday in lieu of $10,000 bail.
