Man shoots dead teenager who knocked him off bicycle
A man has shot dead one teenager and wounded another as he tried to fend off a bungled robbery, according to police.
The 65-year-old was set upon as he cycled along a riverside path in Berks County, Pennsylvania, detectives say.
But after being knocked to the ground, he pulled a handgun, killing a 16-year-old at the scene and wounding a 15-year-old.
The other teen, who was also shot once, was taken to Reading Hospital, where his condition is unknown.
A third teen, identified only as a 15-year-old boy, was stopped at the scene by police and taken in for questioning.
He was later committed to the county youth center in Bern Township on unspecified charges.
After an investigation and forensic examination of the scene, police decided to release the man and charge the youngster.
