Pennsylvania police executed a search warrant at a man’s home following an incident that involved a shooting. At approximately 10 a.m. on a recent morning, law enforcement officers investigated a report about shots being fired from a vehicle. A surveillance camera nearby gave police the information they needed to identify the vehicle, which led the officers to a particular home in the area.
Investigators claim that they discovered numerous items inside the home, resulting in the man’s arrest. He is now facing multiple charges, including unlawful possession of a firearm, aggravated assault and possession of a prohibited offensive weapon. Investigators have also accused the man of being the person who fired shots at another man from the vehicle that was captured on surveillance films.
The man who was shot is expected to recover
Thankfully, the injuries the man who was shot suffered were not fatal. He was taken to a hospital for treatment and is expected to recover. In the meantime, the man who was taken into police custody will have an opportunity to refute the charges against him in court.
The penalties for drug and firearms crimes can be severe
In addition to facing charges of weapons crimes, the 30 -year-old man is also accused of drug crimes. In such cases, it is wise to build a strong defense before heading to court. A conviction might not only result in substantial fines but a jail sentence, as well. It’s always best to ask an experienced criminal defense attorney to advocate on one’s behalf during a trial.
