RONKS, Pa. (AP) — Police in the heart of Pennsylvania's Amish country say a horse pulling a buggy is dead after being shot by someone in a passing vehicle.

WHTM-TV reported that five people were inside the buggy when the shooting occurred Sunday night in Ronks in southeastern Lancaster County.

The station says the car didn't stop after what sounded like a firecracker, and the horse was discovered to be injured when the buggy arrived at a farm about a mile away. It died before a veterinarian could arrive.

The station says the horse suffered a bullet wound to the left side of its chest. The buggy's passengers weren't injured.
