Man Shoots at Pennsylvania Neighbor Hanging Christmas Lights: Police

Police in suburban Pittsburgh say a man fired a rifle at his neighbor hanging Christmas lights and then held police at bay for several hours inside his home before he was arrested.

Munhall police say 53-year-old Richard Carter has been charged with attempted homicide and other counts after shooting at his neighbor Saturday afternoon. The neighbor suffered a cut lip, which police say was caused by a ricocheted shot fragment.

Authorities say a SWAT team eventually persuaded Carter to surrender.
