Trafford Police: Man said he would 'shoot up' home

Friday, Aug. 30, 2013, 3:39 p.m.
 

A Trafford man is accused of threatening to “shoot up” a Forest Avenue home Thursday.

Borough police arrested Patrick W. Daugherty, 30, at gunpoint at about 6 p.m. after he allegedly placed his hand on a revolver in a holster on his belt and told a Forest Avenue man that he was going to “shoot your house up,” according to an affidavit of probable cause.

Daugherty was walking his dog past the victim's home and “continued to place his hand on his revolver in a threatening manner,” Patrolman Joseph Riley wrote in the complaint.

After he left the area, police tracked Daugherty with help from the victim, who had called Westmoreland 911 to report the incident. Police confiscated a revolver from an unbuttoned holster on Daugherty's hip, a pistol from his back pocket and a pocket knife. Both weapons were loaded, police said. Daugherty told police he patted his pocket but didn't grab his gun.

He is charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats and reckless endangerment before District Judge Helen Kistler. He is free on $10,000 unsecured bond.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled on Sept. 17.
