Heymann Indicted as Alleged Shooter

The case involving a Pennsylvania man who was shot in a purported hunting-related shooting has been forwarded to Circuit Court.

Harford County resident Richard Heymann was indicted this week in Baltimore County on charges he shot and injured a Pennsylvania man in late November.

The indictment was handed down on Dec. 19, according to the Baltimore County State's Attorney's Office. A preliminary hearing had originally been scheduled for Friday morning.

Heymann stands accused of shooting and severely wounding 43-year-old Christopher E. Kinne, of Lancaster, PA. Kinne was shot in northern Baltimore County on Nov. 27 while reportedly hunting on private property, according to court records.

Kinne meanwhile remains in rehabilitative care one month after the incident, according to family members.

Court records detail an altercation between Kinne and Heymann that began while the two men were hunting separately in Parkton. Heymann accused Kinne of trying to hunt on his friend's private property in a wooded area in the 300 block of Stablers Church Road.

Heymann advised Kinne that the police were called, while Kinne attempted to walk away from the situation.

"Upon Richard Heymann stating repeatedly to stay at the location to await police arrival, Christopher Kinne continued to state that he was not staying and attempted to walk toward Richard Heymann," according to the incident report.

Heymann told police that he threatened a warning shot, however, the only bullet fired wound up striking Kinne in the leg.

Kinne was transported via ambulance to York (PA) Hospital Shock Trauma with serious injuries.

Heymann, an Abingdon resident, faces a total of up to 35 years in prison for first- and second-degree assault charges.

It was state game lands. Don't you wonder why they haven't pressed charges against Kinne for trespassing?
