Former Monroe teen charged with attempted homicide
A former Monroe County teen has been charged with attempted homicide stemming from an incident that occurred last July.
Pocono Mountain Regional police said Karahn A. Fowler, 18, formerly of Blakeslee, has been charged for an incident that occurred on July 14 at 2425 Yellowstone Drive, in Blakeslee.
On that date police responded to that address and learned a 17-year-old male had been shot with an AK 47 type weapon. The teen suffered extensive serious injuries that resulted in several surgeries over the past several months. Due to the extent of the injuries, police were unable to interview the victim and obtain a statement relative to what had happened.
Recently, the teen was able to talk to police and told them he had been shot by Fowler during an argument the two were having at the residence.
Police obtained an arrest warrant for Fowler, who had moved from the area after the shooting and was living in New York.
He was picked up by New York authorities earlier this week and brought back to Monroe County. He was arraigned before District Judge Richard S. Claypool, of Pocono Pines, on charges of criminal attempt-homicide, aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, and simple assault.
Fowler was unable to post the $350,000 bail and was committed to the county prison in Snydersville.
