3 Arrested in Connection With Drive-by Shooting at Pennsylvania Birthday Party

Three men have been jailed in a drive-by shooting police say targeted a Pennsylvania birthday party attended by several children.

In all, state police say there were nine adults and seven children in the Menallen Township house that was peppered with gunfire about 8:20 p.m. Tuesday. Nobody was wounded.

Police say 22-year-old Patrick Dugan, of Uniontown, fired several shots into the house because he believed his friend was ripped off during a drug deal earlier in the evening.

That man, 18-year-old Zachary Helisek and 21-year-old Jordan Cicconi, both of Smock, have also been jailed on the same charges.

Police say they caught two of the men when they drove back near the house shortly after the shooting, and later caught up with Helisek.

Online court records don't list defense attorneys.
