Deputies: Victor man fires bullet into home while cleaning gun

A 27-year-old Victor man has been charged with misdemeanor reckless endangerment after deputies say he failed to remove a bullet from a handgun he was cleaning, which discharged and fired a bullet through his home and into his neighbor’s home.

The neighbors were home at the time of the incident, which happened Wednesday at 6:10 p.m., but no one was injured, according to the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office.

Joshua Lagatella-Cronk, of 7696 County Road 41, was cleaning his Glock handgun Wednesday but failed to check the chamber before taking it apart, deputies allege. When he pulled the trigger in order to take it apart, the gun fired.
