Cumberland County approves shooting range

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Cumberland County has approved a permit for a shooting range complex.

The Fayetteville Observer reported (http://bit.ly/18FRXgQ ) the board of commissioners voted 4-3 Monday night to approve plans for the TigerSwan Range Complex, an outdoor firing range and training site.

Kevin West owns property next to the Tigerswan facility and says he's worried about what would happen if a gun were fired in the wrong direction.

He says his property is only 100 yards from the shooting area.

Economic Development Alliance chairman Chris Bostock says said TigerSwan was heavily recruited to be a part of the county as a military contractor.

Real estate broker Keith Barnes said TigerSwan's presence would hurt property values for property owners in the area.

An attempt to delay approval was rejected.
