Indiana County man committed for gun incident

Friday, March 7, 2014, 5:00 p.m.

A man rode his bicycle seven miles on Thursday with a loaded rifle on his back, authorities say.

State police in Indiana said 19-year-old from Creekside, who was not identified, stole a rifle and ammunition 5 p.m. from a home in the 6000 block of Five Points Road.

He loaded the gun and rode his bike to a home in the 5000 block of Route 119 in Rayne Township, police said.

When he arrived at the home, he tapped on a window and scared the people inside, who came outside and found him standing in the yard threatening to commit suicide, police said.

Police confiscated the gun and had the man committed for a mental health evaluation.
