Prosecutors in Beaver County withdrew the charges filed against a man they accused of carrying a gun and threatening to kill people inside the nursing home where his mother lives.

County detectives then refiled a charge of carrying a firearm without a license against Larry A. Hicks, 53, of Rochester, according to state court documents. Hicks remains in the Beaver County Prison to await a preliminary hearing scheduled Thursday.

Prosecutors could not be reached on Tuesday to explain why they withdrew the original charges of defiant trespass, harassment and making terroristic threats as well as the firearms charge.

Sheriff's deputies arrested Hicks on Jan. 17 at the Friendship Ridge nursing home when they found him carrying a .22-caliber semiautomatic pistol and a pair of loaded magazines for the weapons.
