Youngwood man accused of making threat with shotgun
A Youngwood man accused of threatening to kill his girlfriend's son with a shotgun last week is being held in the Westmoreland County Prison on $100,000 bail.
A preliminary hearing for Donald Lee Campbell, 54, of 209 N. Third St., was postponed from Tuesday. A new date was not available.
Campbell allegedly was arguing with his girlfriend's son about items missing from the home where they live with Campbell's girlfriend and her daughter, according to an affidavit of probable cause.
Police did not list the victim's age. The investigating trooper could not be reached Tuesday.
During the argument, Campbell retrieved a 12-gauge shotgun and pointed it at the victim and said, “I'm going to (expletive) kill you,” Trooper Eric Zona wrote in the affidavit of probable cause.
The victim grabbed the gun and pushed it away when Campbell allegedly fired the weapon and buckshot struck a living room wall, police said.
Campbell is charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, simple assault, reckless endangerment, harassment and disorderly conduct before District Judge James Falcon.
