A man from the heart of Pennsylvania's Amish country faces charges in a drive-by shooting that killed a horse pulling a buggy with five people inside.

Twenty-two-year-old Timothy Antonio Diggs Jr. of Ronks, Lancaster County, was charged Wednesday with reckless endangerment, cruelty to animals and a weapons charge.

Diggs has been behind bars since Dec. 3 on unrelated burglary charges.

Police said an Amish man reported on Nov. 23 that as a car passed his buggy he heard a firecracker noise but continued to his farm, unaware that the noise was a gunshot.

After arriving home, he discovered his horse was shot in the side. It died before a vet arrived.

The people in the buggy -- an Amish couple and their three young children -- weren't hurt.
