Cambria County Homicide

2ND UPDATE:

According to Cambria County District Attorney Greg Neugebauer, a 67-year-old man has been charged with homicide in the fatal shooting of his 21-year-old grandson at a Cambria Township home.

Neugebauer says John Oblinsky, of Summerhill, faces charges of criminal homicide and aggravated assault following a domestic-related shooting Friday evening.

The district attorney’s office says police were called to the home, along Fairlane Road, for a reported shots fired incident.

Investigators say police found 21-year-old Jacob Fisher unresponsive at the residence, and the coroner later pronounced him dead at the scene.

‚ÄúThere is never a reason that domestic disputes should turn physical or involve firearms,” Neugebauer said.

Oblinsky has since been arraigned to Cambria County Prison, and his bail has been denied.

Neugebauer says the investigation is still ongoing.

Oblinsky’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 11, according to court documents.

UPDATE:

Cambria County coroner Jeff Lees has identified the victim of Friday’s fatal domestic-related shooting at a Cambria Township home.

Lees identified the victim as 21-year-old Jacob Fisher and says that a homicide investigation is now underway.

Fisher was shot and killed inside a residence along Fairlane Road, around 6 p.m. Friday evening.

Lees says Fisher suffered a single-gunshot wound to the chest.

A suspect has not yet been identified and authorities have not announced any charges at this time.
