GREENFIELD, WI — A Greenfield man will not face charges after he told police he was aiming for a coyote when he shot into a neighbor’s home with a crossbow, according to a police report.

It happened on March 8 around 10 a.m. near 95th Street and Plainfield Avenue. A woman told police she heard a loud noise in her kitchen area before finding glass, a hole in her sliding door, and a metal object on the ground, according to a police report. She soon noticed that her cat dragged the shaft end of an arrow nearby, according to police.

Police looked around the area behind the house to see if anyone was shooting arrows, and they found a man who said he was planting seeds, police said.
