Charges Dropped Against Man Who Shot Would-Be Robber

A would-be victim who fought back during an attempted robbery at his East Third Street home in Langeloth, Washington County, is no longer charged with attempted homicide.

On Sept. 1, Eraldo Iannitelli, 48, was allegedly attacked outside his home by two teens wearing masks, carrying a baseball bat and BB gun.

Iannitelli said the two teens demanded money.

After being hit several times, Iannitelli said he reached into his car, grabbed a shotgun and fired once, hitting a 16-year-old in the back.

On Wednesday, all charges were dropped against Iannitelli.
