WOODBURY - A Seaford man is accused of firing guns at a target in his backyard, which borders an elementary school.

Detectives say Michael Marron fired a BB gun and .22-caliber rifle at a metal suit of armor that was laid against a chain-link fence in his backyard. When officers arrived, they found shell casing from a rifle at his home on Island Channel Road. 

The fence is the only thing separating Marron’s yard from the Seaford Harbor School fields.

Police say Marron’s neighbors were fed up with his backyard shooting range and called 911.

“There's people that walk their dogs or jog right along the fence… It's not a good situation,” said Mike Scarangella, Marron’s neighbor. “He's a problem. He has no common courtesy, no consideration, no respect for neighbors.”

Detectives say Marron was also in possession of cocaine and painkillers.

Howard Schwartz, Marron’s attorney, says his client has no record to speak of and has close ties with the community. He says Marron was only charged with misdemeanors.

Marron was arraigned in court on Sunday and released without bail. Reports say he faces two counts of prohibitions on the use and possession of firearms. He also faces criminal possession of a controlled substance charges.

He is due back in court on July 10.
