FAIRVIEW TWP — The father of a teenager suspected of opening fire at another teen last week is now accused in connection with the investigation.

State police allege David V. Rodgers, 57, of Donegal Township removed the gun they believe was used in the shooting from a house on Haysville Road in Fairview Township before troopers could search the home.

Rodgers was arrested Friday.

Because of a prior conviction, according to charging documents, Rodgers, under state law, is barred from having guns.

Rodgers' son, Adam J. Rodgers, 19, of Donegal Township, remains in the county prison in lieu of $500,000, charged with attempted homicide and aggravated in the shooting Thursday on New Hope Road in Cherry Township.

Two others — Henry A. Leroy, 19, of East Brady, Clarion County; and Tyler A. Martin, 17, of Worth Township — face similar charges.
