HAMBURG, Pa. - Charges have been filed in connection with a fight that led to a shooting in Hamburg over the Memorial Day weekend.

Zachary Glover, 25, of Bernville, fired an old-style weapon, a black powder pistol, into a home on South Fourth Street, striking a woman inside in the hand, police said.

"May 26, 2018, at around 2:36 in the morning, officers responded to a call for a fight, disturbance," said Chief Anthony Kuklinski, Hamburg Police Department. "Additional officers responded, went in and found that the victim had been shot from outside."

"With the assistance of the Pennsylvania State Police, our officers initiated a car stop and located Mr. Glover in the vehicle," Kuklinski explained.
