"A man is now charged with shooting three people Wednesday afternoon on a Hazleton street.
Guy Cliett was led to jail in handcuffs after his arraignment in Wilkes-Barre Thursday morning.
Police said Guy Cliett, 36, from the Philadelphia area, was arraigned in Wilkes-Barre Thursday morning. He faces more than a dozen charges, including aggravated assault. Cliett has a criminal history with drugs and violence. His bail was set at $1 million.
Police said the shooting stemmed from an on-going disagreement between Cliett and the victims.
The shooting happened on East Chestnut Street about 1 p.m. Police filled the street after the shooting and a state police helicopter flew overhead.
"I was sitting on the porch with my girlfriend and I heard 'bang, bang, bang.' I said to my girlfriend, 'that's not fireworks. That's gunshots,'" said Jeffrey Capece.
"I heard the shots go, I was in the store. They wouldn't let me out," said an elderly man who wouldn't give his name. He was stuck inside the store right across the street as police investigated and searched for suspects. "I spent three and a half years in the Army in Italy, France and Germany, didn't get hit and I can't walk my own street?"
Yes , this is the same Hazelton that is so worried about "Illegals"
