MASSENA — An 88-year-old woman faces weapons charges after police said she was firing a .22 caliber shotgun at squirrels in her backyard from a second-story window.

Village police charged Marcella M. Bailey, of 177 McKinley Court, with illegal discharge of a firearm at 12:50 p.m. Monday.

“She admitted she had put some bait in her backyard to attract the squirrels and was trying to kill them,” Sgt. Mark Englert said. Police said they were concerned shots could ricochet off the rock wall at the back of her property.

She was released on an appearance ticket to Village Court.
