CORRECTION: Article headline originally stated ‘Coudersport Woman’. It has been changed to ‘Coudersport Man’.

No information was provided as to why the shot was fired into the camp.

Pekarski was charged with disorderly conduct in District Court 55-3-01.

    Thank you. When I first posted the article I was assuming it was a female. I later saw that Jessie was a man, and re-read the article to be sure I had the information correct, but forgot the headline!!! lol 🙂 Thanks!
