Man charged in Pa. drive-by shooting that killed horse pulling buggy with Amish family inside

A man from the heart of Pennsylvania's Amish country faces charges in a drive-by shooting that killed a horse pulling a buggy with five people inside.

Timothy Antonio Diggs Jr. lives in Ronks, in Lancaster County. He was charged Wednesday with reckless endangerment, cruelty to animals and a weapons offense.

Diggs has been jailed since Dec. 3 on unrelated burglary charges and can't be reached for comment.

Police say an Amish man reported on Nov. 23 that as a car passed his buggy he heard a firecracker noise but continued to his farm, unaware the noise was a gunshot.

When he arrived home he discovered his horse was shot in the side. The horse died before a vet arrived.

The Amish couple and their three young children in the buggy weren't hurt.
