BARTO, Pa. (AP) - Authorities are seeking a man in the shooting of a 13-year-old boy through the bedroom window of his eastern Pennsylvania home.

State police in Berks County say 19-year-old Matthew Hale of Hereford Township is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and weapons charges.

Authorities said the boy and two friends were in his bedroom when a car pulled into the driveway and a man came to the window and punched the screen in, yelling obscenities. The two friends ran but heard loud bangs and gunshots and then the victim screaming. He was critically injured. Police said another relative reported receiving a message on social media that said “We Even.”

An arrest warrant was issued for Hale; court documents don’t list a defense attorney who could respond to the charges.
