Female Not Charged In Shooting Last August in Foster Township

Investigation Closed into Non-deadly Shooting

On June 11, 2021, McKean County District Attorney Stephanie L. Vettenburg-Shaffer reports that the police investigation into a non-deadly shooting in Foster Township that occurred on August 16, 2020 has concluded.  

Police initially responded to a call describing an assault on a female caller by a known male outside a residence on Harrisburg Run in the early morning hours.  

Foster Township Police and Bradford City Police responded.  The male had left the scene prior to police arrival.  Minutes after police left the scene, they were called back again for a non-deadly shooting by the female.  

Foster Township Police conducted interviews and completed a thorough investigation that included assistance from Bradford City Police, Pennsylvania State Police Forensic Services Unit, the Pennsylvania State Police Crime Lab, K9 searches by K9’s with the McKean County Drug Task Force K9 Unit and the Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Department, and the District Attorney’s Office. 

At this time, all reports have been received.  The investigation revealed that a male was hit by a single bullet in the lower body.  Based on a review of the evidence and relevant statutes, the female will not be charged in the shooting.  

The male, Christopher Horton, has been charged with Simple Assault.  Foster Township Officer Eric Neiswonger is the lead investigator on the case.
