Man charged in health club shooting turns himself in
FALLS, Pa. (AP) — A New Jersey man accused of shooting his girlfriend’s ex-husband at a Pennsylvania health club has turned himself in.
Luis Medina faces several charges, including aggravated assault. The 33-year-old Maple Shade man surrendered to police in Falls, Pennsylvania on Monday, two days after the shooting occurred.
Authorities say Medina, his girlfriend and the victim were attending a youth boxing competition at the club when the two men became involved in a dispute Saturday night.
An off-duty police officer who witnessed the confrontation said he heard a gunshot, then saw Medina with a handgun. The officer tried to chase after Medina but couldn’t capture him.
The victim underwent surgery and was hospitalized in critical condition.
Medina was being held on $200,000 bail. It wasn’t known Tuesday if he’s retained an attorney.
