The Southborough Police Department has issued news about charges being pressed against a Southborough man and his friend.  On Saturday, the Madison Place resident’s gun was purportedly “discharged” by his friend.  Thankfully no one was hurt.

From the SPD’s release:

After speaking with a male and female outside the residence, it was determined that someone had possibly discharged a firearm inside of [an apartment], and left the scene. Further investigation showed the apartment owner was showing his pistol (H&K 9 mm) to a friend when the discharge occurred sending one round through an interior wall before lodging into an exterior wall the same unit. Three guns were seized from the residence along with a large number of ammunition boxes. The Firearms License of the gun owner, [a 24 year old Southborough man], was later suspended by Shrewsbury Police where the license originated.
