Man Shoots, Kills Neighbor With Bow & Arrow In Argument Over Woman

STONYCREEK TOWNSHIP (KDKA) – State police are investigating after a man was killed with an arrow in Somerset County.

The incident happened at a home in the 7900-block of Lincoln Highway in Central City, Stonycreek Township, at about 4:45 p.m. Sunday.

"It's a pretty quiet place," Larry Buger, a neighbor said. "Hardly any trouble at all."

According to investigators, 43-year-old Tony Bittinger, of Fort Hill, went to the residence with a weapon, approached the 38-year-old suspect and got into an argument over a woman.

The suspect went inside the home and came back with a compound bow and told Bittinger to leave.

As Bittinger approached the front porch of the home, the suspect fired an arrow into his chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The coroner says Bittinger died when the arrow punctured his lung and blood filled his heart.

A compound bow has a system of pulleys that provide more force with less pull. It's normally used for hunting.

State police are sorting through statements of a half dozen witnesses – both residents of the house and relatives of the victim who say they went with him to the house.

A neighbor says she heard the argument, but it sounded like an adult arguing with a child. Bittinger's brothers told friends he was shot as he initially approached the house.

So far, no charges have been filed.
