Shots reportedly fired at SUV after fight in North Union
A New Year’s Day fight at a residence in North Union escalated when shots were fired at a vehicle, police reported Saturday.
State police in Uniontown said Terry Lee Teets of Lemont Furnace fired “warning shots” at a Ford Explorer carrying Melissa and Jacob Lee Shaw of Searights.
According to authorities, Teets told the Shaws to leave his Grubbs Avenue residence after he broke up a fight between Kerry Teets and Jacob Lee Shaw. Police said the Shaws then got into a Ford Explorer and “drove toward” Teets as he stood on the road near his home.
That prompted Teets to fire warning shots as the Explorer approached, police said. As the vehicle continued toward Teets, he fired several shots into the grille area, police said.
A press release issued by police did not give a time for the altercation.
No charges have been filed, and the investigation is ongoing, according to the press release.
