SPRING GROVE, Pa. (WHTM) – Police say an argument over a Facebook friend request led a Spring Grove man to shoot at his brother.

Corey Beard, 38, faces a list of charges related to Sunday’s incident that also involved his wife.

It’s alleged that at Beard’s home, he and his wife got an argument over a Facebook friend request. When Beard’s brother intervened, Beard grabbed a 20-gauge shotgun and fired three rounds, narrowly missing his brother’s head.

Beard’s brother reportedly ran to a local restaurant where he called police.

Beard was arrested shortly after at a relative’s residence in Penn Township.

He is charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, recklessly endangering another person, and disorderly conduct.
