A man from the heart of Pennsylvania's Amish country faces charges in a drive-by shooting that killed a horse pulling a buggy with five people inside.
Diggs has been jailed since Dec. 3 on unrelated burglary charges and can't be reached for comment.
Police say an Amish man reported on Nov. 23 that as a car passed his buggy he heard a firecracker noise but continued to his farm, unaware the noise was a gunshot.
When he arrived home he discovered his horse was shot in the side. The horse died before a vet arrived.
The Amish couple and their three young children in the buggy weren't hurt.
