GRANT COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A 71 year old Dickeyville man has been arrested for a shooting on a state highway in rural Grant County.

Thomas Welp tells authorities he was firing his rifle at a red-tailed hawk in a tree and didn’t know he had hit another vehicle.

A 40 year old mother and her four children were riding in an SUV along Wisconsin Highway 61 near the Platte River Bridge when their vehicle was hit by a bullet.

The Lancaster woman told authorities she saw the barrel of a rifle come out of the driver’s side window as they passed, then she heard a shot. A bullet hole was found in the driver’s side door of her vehicle and the bullet was recovered.

The DNR also recovered a dead hawk at the scene. Welp has been tentatively charged with recklessly endangering safety. Neither the woman nor her four children were injured.
