Berlin gun store withdraws request for shooting range

Posted: Updated:

A gun store in Berlin has withdrawn its request for a new indoor shooting range.

BMG Guns & Ammo, located on the Berlin Turnpike, was originally looking to develop the shooting range within a section of its already existing gun shop.

The move sparked controversy among neighbors who said they were worried about safety and the value of their property.

There's no word on why the shop decided to withdraw its request.
