Indiana Law Student Shoots Casebook with AK-47 Assault Rifle

From the Bloomington Herald Times:  Police Say Shooting Suspect May Have Been Firing at His Textbook, by Bethany Nolan:

Indiana University law student Jesse Sneed may have been aiming his assault rifle at his Real Estate Transfer Finance and Development textbook when he fired shots from his westside apartment balcony early Tuesday morning, police say. The book was found later in the parking lot, shot clean through by two rounds, according to investigators. Sneed, 27, was charged Thursday with criminal recklessness in connection with the incident, which closed down businesses and schools for several hours after neighbors reported hearing gunshots on the city's west side Tuesday. No one was injured.
