RANSOM TWP. - A Clarks Summit man was charged with aggravated assault and other counts after he admitted to police he shot a man who was hunting Saturday.

State police said Joseph James Taft, 22, was arrested after the victim, Henry Krieg, 41, of Scranton, reported that Mr. Taft shot him in the face with a rifle near the tree line at 2651 Ransom Road about 7:30 a.m.

Mr. Krieg hid in the woods and called police, who said he was bleeding from a face wound when they found him. Police said Mr. Taft told them he shot Mr. Krieg because he was upset someone was hunting "their deer."

Mr. Taft's bail information was not available.

Please, no one call this a hunting accident or incident. It was agrevated assault with a deadly weapon at best and attempted murder at worst.
