A McKees Rocks man has been arrested after police said he shot a co-worker in the leg at the Pepsi-Cola plant in Stowe.
Police said Michael Harris, 29, of McKees Rocks and an employee at the facility at 400 Graham St., got into an argument with another employee at about 2:45 p.m. and the dispute led to the shooting. Authorities allege the argument stemmed from a video posted on social media.
The injury to the victim, who was not identified, was not life-threatening.
Mr. Harris surrendered himself to the management on site and was taken into custody by Stowe Township Police without incident. Police said Mr. Harris, who was taken to the Allegheny County Jail, is charged with aggravated assault and recklessly endangering another person.
Officials said in a criminal complaint that the victim had demanded that Mr. Harris take down a video he had posted online; following a physical confrontation, Mr. Harris got a gun from his car and shot the victim.
Court documents don’t list an attorney who could respond to the charges and a listed number for Mr. Harris couldn’t be found Tuesday.
