ERIE, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a man shot and wounded by his friend in an apparently unprovoked attack at a western Pennsylvania gun range has been released from a hospital.
It’s still not known what sparked the shooting that began around 2 p.m. on Tuesday. 26-year-old Robert Eppley, of North East, and the victim, a 28-year-old Erie man, were taking turns firing a newly purchased pistol when Eppley allegedly turned and shot the victim.
A 67-year-old man in a neighboring stall saw the shooting and opened fire, fatally shooting Eppley. Authorities did not release the names of the 28-year-old man who was wounded or the 67-year-old. No charges have yet been filed.
