20-year-old Man Causes Loud Boom

January 14, 2013 Updated Jan 14, 2013 at 2:08 PM EDT

Lakewood-Busti Police are confirming that a loud “boom” heard Sunday night was the result of a 20-year-old man engaging in target practice.

The man told police he mixed three 6-pound boxes of Tannerite together and shot the product with a 30.06 rifle in a ravine on Lawson Road in the Town of Busti, causing a very loud explosion.

Tannerite is sold at local sporting goods stores as a target shooting accessory and is very dangerous.

No charges are being filed at this time.
