City makes changes at shooting range after ricochet leaves car window broken
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A dangerous ricochet at the Koko Head Shooting Complex ended with a broken car window.
Firearms experts believe a high caliber bullet hit a dormant slug and lodged in the northern backstop, causing the ricochet.
In the wake of the incident, only 22 L-R caliber ammunition will now be allowed at the north-facing ranges.
Staff say it has a lower chance of ricocheting.
The temporary restriction will last until the back stop can be reinforced, which is expected to be complete in November.
