BLAIRSVILLE, Pa. A western Pennsylvania man who allegedly shot a deer near a busy Walmart parking lot on the first day of rifle season last year has been ordered to stand trial on reckless endangerment and state game charges.
Arcangelo "Angelo" Bianco Jr., of Derry Township, spotted a deer in the parking lot Nov. 26, fired several shots, then ran to the side of the Burrell Township store where workers were loading tractor-trailers, wildlife conservation officers contend. Bianco allegedly continued shooting at the fleeing deer, and he eventually retrieved it from a woman's yard on the other side of a highway.
Among other things, authorities contend Bianco violated a state "safety zone" law by firing a weapon within 150 yards of an occupied structure. Bianco also didn't have a hunting license, authorities said.
Bianco said only that "the truth will come out" after his preliminary hearing Wednesday in nearby Blairsville, about 45 miles east of Pittsburgh.

I think it already has.
One can only wonder if Archangelo is another visitor from the south.
No. My grievous error. Archangelo’s ancestors have to be Italiano.
It’s idiots like this that give real hunters a bad name.
What a moron......
(that had to be funny as hell to see, if you were there - and behind him lol)
Yeah, I howled when I read the full article. Frankly, if my old man was alive, I would have thought it could have been him.
He was arrested for firing a gun near a lot of people. The deer is irrelevant. Who are the idiots who write these headlines?
Well who hasn’t shot a deer or other game in a Walmart parking lot?
There is so much stupid here he would embarrass a caveman.
Everybody knows Walmart has no ammo in stock!
Some of it's for sale ... some of it's flying around...
He didn’t have a hunting license.
They're big enough to be a deer zone.
What? He had to shoot at it numerous times before finally bagging it? Are you sure this guy isn’t a cop?
I’d go with the “I shot in self defense” argument.
I don’t think that’s gonna help him. LOL
The work at The Associated Press
Well then maybe he could try the ‘heat of passion’ angle ?
He might as well have some fun along the way..... no way out of this one.
Why do they want to try him in a Walmart parking lot?
Damned AP and their incompetent buffoon headline writers.
Deer Cleanup in Aisle 3!!
I seen things I’d like to shoot in a Walmart parking lot....but a deer was never considered.
His lawyer is seeking a change of venue to a neaby K-Mart.
That story reminds me of the old Bugs Bunny cartoon where Elmer Fudd chases the rabbit into the opera house in full hunting gear.
Well at least did not shoot any road signs
Thats a first for Pennsylvania.......
Years ago when I was living out along the Michigan-Indiana border a deer came into the parking lot of a local discount store, and actually crashed through one of their front windows. Severely injured and bleeding, a customer pulled out his Bowie knife, slit the deer’s throat and put it out of its misery in front of the checkout lines packed with Saturday morning family shoppers.
Now THAT’S how you do it!
Did he have his feeder set up there? Was he using the free RV parking? Did an SUV make it happen?
He was hungry?
Maybe it was close to Valentines Day and he was shopping for his Dear Deer?
