BLOOMINGTON – An Indiana University law student accused of firing several shots from an apartment balcony may have been aiming at a textbook, police said.
Investigators said Friday that they found two bullet holes in a book on real estate transfer finance and development in the complex’s parking lot.
Jesse M. Sneed, 27, faces a felony charge of criminal recklessness with a weapon in connection with Tuesday morning’s shooting.
No one was injured, but the incident prompted police to close businesses and roads around the complex for several hours.
The apartment is about a mile away from the Indiana University campus.
Officers arrested Sneed on Tuesday as he tried to drive away from the area. Police have said they found Sneed “under the influence of alcohol” and uncooperative.
Investigators said they found two assault rifles, an AR-15 and an AK-47, in the attic of his apartment.
