Hail Of Bullets Celebrates Obama Victory http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/27557523 Burlington Man Arrested In Shooting updated 7:19 p.m. ET, Thurs., Nov. 6, 2008 BURLINGTON, Vt. - A Burlington man was so happy at the news that Barack Obama will be the next president that he fired a gun inside his home some 18 times, sending a hail of bullets into neighboring homes, according to the Burlington Police Department. James G. Dewalt, 34, faces three counts of reckless endangerment in connection with the Tuesday night shooting. Police learned of the shooting at about 7 a.m. Wednesday when they responded to a report of bullet holes in a North Street apartment building. Officers quickly concluded the holes were in fact made by bullets and found the bullets had passed through a porch wall and window before being embedded inside the residence. One round passed through a wall inside an apartment and was found lying on the floor, police said. Police also located a second residence that had a bullet lodged in a window casing. Investigators said they determined the trajectory of the bullets and traced the source back to Dewalt's home. After being questioned by police, Dewalt admitted that he was the person responsible for firing the rounds, police said. Dewalt told police he fired a Russian-made .22 caliber rifle -- similar to the ones used in biathlon competitions -- in celebration of Obama's victory, police said. Dewalt cooperated with police and turned the rifle and bullet casings over to authorities, police said. No one was injured in the shooting.
