State Police in Girard are building the case against a man accused of firing a weapon during a barbecue at a home.
The incident allegedly took place at a home in the 11000 block of Lucas Road around 1am Sunday morning.
Police say it was during an argument when 37 year old James Pitt pulled a weapon and fired into the air. He attempted to fire a second time but the gun jammed, leading others to grab and disarm him.
Pitt faces Reckless Endangerment charges and is being held on probation violations.
