BREVARD COUNTY, FLORDIA- Police have arrested a Pennsylvania man that is accused of attempting to kill a 13-year old boy.

It happened near Stauffer Road in Bechtelsville, around 7 p.m.

A 19-year-old from Hereford Township is charged in the killing attempt, police from the Reading barracks said. She turned right out of the driveway and was headed toward Route 100.

Authorities said the 13-year-old boy and two friends were in his bedroom when a vehicle pulled into the driveway and a man came to the window and punched the screen in, yelling obscenities.

Hale was charged Saturday with attempted homicide, two counts of aggravated assault, and single counts of a firearms violation and possessing an instrument of crime, police said. As the friends ran out of the room, they heard loud bangs and gunshots followed by the victim screaming.

While police identified Hale as the shooting suspect, he was not in custody as of Sunday afternoon. The teen was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Initial reports indicated the victim is a teenager, but state police would not confirm that. Police didn't immediately reveal how Hale got to Florida.
