Williamsport, Pa. — A 34-year-old man is behind bars after police say he shot another man in the leg and chest Thursday night.

Curtis Love remained at the scene of the shooting, which took place in the 800 block of Elmira Street, according to Williamsport Officer Christopher Salisbury. He still had the gun in his possession when police took him into custody, reports say.
