A 27-year-old New Columbia man is jailed after police say he shot at another man early Sunday morning.
According to State Police at Milton, Zakary Walls is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and terroristic threats along with other counts. Police say at 12:15 a.m. Sunday, Walls fired one round of a shotgun in the direction of a New Columbia man, striking the roof of the victim’s vehicle at a residence along Bostion Road in White Deer Township.
