Mental health evaluation ordered for teen in trail shooting

READING, Pa. - A teenager who was involved in last week's shooting on the Thun Trail in Cumru Township will receive a mental health evaluation, authorities said.

Police said three teenagers tried to rob a 65-year-old man, but the man felt threatened, so he pulled out a gun and shot two of the teens, killing one.

Authorities said the man won't be charged.

The evaluation was ordered in juvenile court for the teen who was not wounded.

We're told the teen who was wounded is still in the hospital.
