Man Fires Rifle At Neighbor Hanging Christmas Lights
A Pittsburgh man (not pictured) fired a rifle at his neighbor who was hanging Christmas lights, then held police at bay for several hours inside his home before he was arrested, according to the police.
[su_center_ad]According to CBS Philly, Munhall police say Richard Carter, 53, has been charged with attempted homicide and other counts after shooting at his neighbor on Saturday afternoon.
Carter’s neighbor suffered a cut lip, which police say was caused by a ricocheted fragment from the gunshot.
Eventually a SWAT team persuaded Carter to surrender, according to authorities.
Spent rifle shell casings were found in Carter’s home, along with thousands of rounds of ammunition and at least two dozen guns.
Chief Patrick Campbell said that Carter has mental health issues that were known to police.
According to what Carter told reporters, he was mad at his neighbor for personal reasons.
