SAN MARCOS, Texas -- After neighbors filed for a temporary restraining order against the County Line Shooting Center in San Antonio, a judge gave the owner permission to continue construction.
Judge Brenda Chapman said that since the range isn't open yet, she has no jurisdiction to make a ruling. However, she did not dismiss the case, which opens the door for future lawsuits. Opponents welcomed the opportunity.
"I just don't trust that a bullet wouldn't go over that," said Daniel Vorpahl, who opposes the range. "Someone not properly handling the gun or accidentally discharging."
The rifle range of up to 100 feet was a major concern for opponents. The center will also have pistol, shotgun and bow and arrow ranges.
KVUE spoke to owner Dean Murphy, who declined an interview due to any possible future litigation.
