A man was shot dead in the parking lot of a Johnstown bar that has seen its fair share of trouble. The security cameras that were recently put up in the "Edder's Den" parking lot are helping the Police in their investigation. Joshua Cambric and Jeremy Woodard are both in jail on Monday night facing a list of charges after a shooting in Johnstown on Sunday night that left this man, Tony Phillips, dead. According to court documents filed on Monday, Cambric was the one who pulled the trigger shooting two rounds from a stolen Highpoint handgun through the driver's side window of Phillips' car in the Edders Den parking lot near the Oakhurst Homes. It is an incident the Police say was all captured on the bars newly installed cameras. After the shooting, the Police say the bar's cameras show Cambric being picked up by Woodard before the two sped off into the city stopping at Sheetz in Kernville where the Police say Cambric ditched the gun near a gas pump. It is also the place Woodard was arrested with a significant amount of heroin beside him in his car. Cambric was also found shortly after inside a room at the Econo Lodge across the street. Both men were charged on Monday but so far the Police say they do not know why the shooting happened. In fact, they say they are not event sure at this point how the three knew each other.... Two men were hurt when one of them tried to burn down an old shed and the fire got out of control. The authorities say that one of the victims intentionally set fire to the shed to get rid of it. But before long, the flames grew and that victim tried to put it out. A family in the mobile home next to it had to evacuate. The man who lives in the home tried to close his side door and that is when he was burned by the knob on the door. The fire also caused minor damage to the trailer home next to the shed.
