JOHNSTOWN, CAMBRIA COUNTY--- Jonathan Craddock and John Lattimer were arrested and charged with attempted homicide after a shooting.

Johnstown Police said Craddock and Lattimer went to a home along Thomas Avenue to trade a gun for marijuana.  According to the criminal complaint, Craddock allegedly opened fire on the homeowner and took off.

“'We received a call of the two individuals that matched the description of suspects to be armed and threatening people a few blocks away,” said Chief Craig Foust.

When police arrived they ran inside.  Craddock came out of the house, but Lattimer refused prompting a police standoff.

“We called in the County SERT team,” said Foust.  “It was for the safety of the public and the officers.”

After several hours Lattimer did surrender to police.  A loaded shot gun was found inside of the home the same one police believe Craddock used to shoot the victim.

Foust said additional charges are pending in the case.
