The stray gunshot reportedly came from Gable Farm Lane, which is a few hundred yards from the unidentified victim’s Loudoun County, Va., home. That’s the same county where bullets from an outdoor shooting range are blamed for hitting a home where a baby shower was being hosted in October 2018. A few months prior to that incident, three homes in the area were hit by gunfire from nearby ranges.
Outdoor gun ranges are legal in Loudoun County, so long as they’re not within 50 yards of a highway or 100 yards of a park or school. Loudoun County has a population of over 400,000 people, making it one of Virginia’s largest.
