DILLINER, Pa. (AP) - A southwestern Pennsylvania man has been charged with firing shots at a vehicle owner who allegedly caught the suspect breaking into two vehicles, and for trying to grab a weapon when police arrested him a short time later at a discount store.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 33-year-old Joseph Zgela III, of Point Marion, who remained in the Greene County Prison on Tuesday.

State police arrested Zgela after a resident reported someone had broken into his wife’s car and was in the resident’s pickup about 7:15 a.m. Sunday. The resident fired a shotgun as a warning for Zgela to leave. Police say Zgela ran into a nearby cemetery and fired back at the resident before running to the Family Dollar store in Point Marion, where he was arrested.
