Arcangelo Bianco Jr. is charged with reckless endangerment and hunting law violations for allegedly shooting across a highway to kill a 10-point buck he spotted in a Wal-Mart parking lot in November.
Bianco, 40, faces a preliminary hearing May 1. His attorney didn't immediately return a call for comment Wednesday on charges reported by the Indiana Gazette.
Wildlife Conservation Officer Jack Lucas says Bianco fired several shots in the parking lot from a handgun then retrieved the deer from the side of the highway opposite the store, about 30 miles east of Pittsburgh.
"Obviously, we can't have someone running through a Walmart parking lot shooting at a deer," Lucas told the Gazette.
Lucas says the buck is one of the nicest taken in the county in recent years.
