No injuries were reported after a gun was fired inside a business office on the 1200 block of Broad Street in South Greensburg Friday. Borough police said one person was taken into custody and a criminal complaint was expected to be filed.

No one was injured Friday when a shot was fired inside a South Greensburg tax law office, according to police Chief Scott A. Fanchalsky.

Attorney Jeffrey Burzawa, 59, was charged with reckless endangerment and discharging of a firearm in an occupied structure. He was freed on $5,000 unsecured bond after being arraigned Friday evening.

Fanchalsky said police were called to Burzawa’s Broad Street business around 10:30 a.m. for a reported shooting. One other employee was inside the business when the handgun was fired. There was no damage to the business.

“I don’t believe there was an intended target,” he said.

A March 19 preliminary hearing is set.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
