SMITHSBURG - A Smithsburg man was served with a criminal summons Friday in connection with the firing of a rifle into a Washington County home during a party in July, Maryland State Police said.

Trooper 1st Class M.D. Kretzer said Domer Ulery, 45, of 10 S. Main St., Smithsburg was charged with reckless endangerment and first- and second-degree assault.

Kretzer said Ulery attended a party the evening of July 22 at the home of Robin Wolfe on Raven Rock Road in Smithsburg and brought along several guns that he attempted to sell to partygoers.

He left the party briefly to get firewood for a bonfire and when he returned he thought some of his guns were missing, said Kretzer.

He argued with some people at the party about the weapons and left the party, allegedly firing his rifle at Wolfe's home as he drove off, Kretzer alleged.

The bullet penetrated the exterior of the house and whizzed by Wolfe before lodging in an interior wall, police said.

Wolfe had minor cuts on his shoulder from smashed glass but refused medical treatment, said Kretzer.

Kretzer said the delay in filing charges against Ulery was the result of "a lengthy investigation."
