    JERICHO -- The Vermont Army National Guard firing range became a target of gunfire itself Wednesday morning.

    Two Starksboro men have been charged with firing into the range shortly before 11 a.m. One of them also faces a drunken driving charge.

    Mark Lariviere, 25, and James Richards, 24, were outside the fence of the firing range at the end of Cemetery Road in Jericho, firing a .223-caliber rifle and a .45-caliber pistol into an earthen berm, according to Vermont State Police at Williston.

    Both were charged with reckless endangerment. LaRiviere also was charged with driving under the influence, troopers said. Police confiscated ammunition and guns from the suspects' car.

    Lt. Col. Lloyd Goodrow, spokesman for the Vermont National Guard, said the range was in use by Guard members at the time, though they were not directly in harm's way from the outside shooters. Staff who heard the shots coming from outside the range investigated, found the two men and called state police, he said.

    The two men are due in Vermont District Court on Sept. 16.

    Wait. The National Guard, being soldiers, were at their own range, heard unfamiliar gunfire, saw these guys...and they called the police?!

    I'm sure it was out of their jurisdiction.
