Altoona Shooting Charges
1/21/2013
 
 
 

An eighteen year old charges as a juvenile with firing the shot that killed his sixteen year old friend.  Jesse McElhinny was killed the day after Christmas in his Altoona home.  Late last week the Blair County District Attorney determined there was not enough evidence to prove the alleged shooter who was seventeen at the time meant to kill him.  He has been charged instead with involuntary manslaughter.  That is something McElhinney's family does not agree with.  They say it was an accident and the suspect does not deserve to go to jail.
