Town calls for shooting range to close

Swan Lake Wildlife Area littered with shell casings, residents concerned with neighborhood safety

Pull into the parking lot of the Swan Lake Wildlife Area and you will find it to be littered with shell casings and a sign warning shooters of a nearby neighborhood to the east. The sign is now difficult to read. It is riddled with bullet holes.

Shots fired overnight in Fitchburg

Early Saturday, officers responded to two similar shots-fired calls located about three miles apart. The incidents are not related, police said.
