Father, son charged with attempted homicide in gas station shooting | Poconos and Coal Region
MIDDLE SMITHFIELD TWP., PA. – A father and son were arrested Friday morning in connection with a gas station in Monroe County, police said.
Police said soldiers were ordered to respond to the 600 block on Resica Falls Road in Middle Smithfield Township around 9 a.m. to fire shots at a gas station supermarket in the immediate vicinity of an occupied residence on the property.
Officials said they learned that around midnight, individuals shot eight rounds into the store and fled the scene.
Due to the recent snowfall, the gas station owner was able to follow the fresh and clear tire tracks all the way to the nearby Brushy Mountain Road and in the opposite direction to his other store, Mueller’s Diner and Bar.
The gas station owner received photos of the various tire tracks and notified the state police as soon as he had access to his stores and surveillance.
The soldiers watched Frank Fedor, 48, from East Stroudsburg on Brushy Mountain Road monitor Mueller, and about 10 minutes later the same vehicle, a Toyota Tundra, appeared in the shootout with matching tire tracks.
The Monroe County District Attorney has been informed of the incident and has been given assistance in obtaining search warrants.
White returned to the station and found Fedor in the suspicious vehicle at another gas station.
According to official information, Fedor was approached and initially made statements about an attempt to find “Bo”, the owner at Mueller’s. However, he was heavily intoxicated and couldn’t remember anything other than driving around and drinking with his son Andrew Fedor, 22.
According to police, both Frank and Andrew Fedor were arrested and it was found that Andrew was in possession of a 9mm pistol, similar to the cartridges used.
The Toyota Tundra was also secured pending a search warrant.
The interviews were carried out at PSP Stroudsburg. According to the police, search warrants were issued for the vehicle, the people and the place of residence.
The prosecution cleared attempted murder and related charges for both Andrew and Frank Fedor.
State police are investigating.
