Corry man charged with attempted homicide in Columbus Twp. incident
A Corry man is behind bars on attempted homicide charges stemming from a Saturday night incident in Columbus Twp.
Warren-based Pennsylvania State Police report that Tab D. Hunter, Jr., 36, and another known male arrived at a residence on US 6 in Columbus Twp on Saturday night at about 7:30 p.m.
Hunter, police allege in a public information report, then strangled one of the residents, a 41-year-old female, and was on the ground with her when the other resident, a 36-year-old male, kicked Hunter in the face and mouth “to stop the assault.”
That’s when police allege that Hunter “pulled a gun” on the 36-year-old “and is reported to have shot several rounds from a .40 caliber pistol” at him.
Hunter, according to police, “then stuck a knife in the tire” of the first victim’s vehicle “and shot several holes with the same pistol in the hood, front windshield and roof of the vehicle.”
Police say Hunter was taken into custody on a felony warrant on changes of attempted homicide, strangulation, aggravated assault, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.
Following a preliminary arraignment before Forest County District Justice Daniel Miller on Sunday evening, Hunter was placed in the Warren County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bail, online court records indicate.
Police say the incident is currently under “active investigation” with additional search warrants pending.
Online court records indicate a preliminary hearing has been set for July 7 at 1 p.m.
