Reno County commissioners have made public shooting illegal along much of the Arkansas River in the county.

Tuesday's vote came after a stray bullet believed to be fired from along the river went through a window and landed near a mother and her baby last month near Nickerson. No one was injured.

The county will ban shooting within the banks of the Arkansas River or from public or private property when the target is within the river banks. A violation would be a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and/or a fine up to $1,000.

The ban exempts law officers who are on duty. During hunting season, those with a hunting license in areas designated for public hunting also would be exempt.
