Man jailed without bail after shooting at a home in Elkland

MANSFIELD — A 36-year-old man has been jailed on attempted homicide and related offenses following an early morning shooting Monday that landed another in a trauma center, according to state police.

Terrance Hood, of Elkland, has been charged with allegedly shooting a 25-year-old Wellsboro man in the chest at 116 Proctor Ave. in Elkland about 3:10 a.m., Trooper Andrea Pelachick said in a news release.

The victim, who identity was not released, was rushed to Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital, Sayre, Pelachick said. There was no information Tuesday night about his medical condition.

At the shooting scene, the victim was found on the front porch “with a gunshot wound to the chest area,” the trooper said.

Hood, taken into custody Monday at an undisclosed location, was arraigned before District Judge James Carlson on charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, possession of methamphetamines and other related offenses. He was committed to the Tioga County Prison without bail.

Several questions remained unanswered. Police did not say if they knew what the motive was behind the shooting. Nor did investigators comment of whether the two men knew one another or if this was a random act of violence.

Besides not disclosing where Hood was arrested, police did not say if they recovered the weapon used in the shooting.
