Week in Review

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

It's time to take a look back at the stories making headlines this week in the 69 News week in review.

Monday evening, Reading Police were searching for the people they said set up a pizza delivery man and shot him in the face.

It happened in the 500 block of Birch Street.

Police said someone called in a delivery to Dominos, but no one who lived on that street actually ordered the pizza.

They said the victim was then attacked by three men when he got to the street.

He was hospitalized after the attack. 

Friday, police arrested Christian Hernandez, 19, and charged him in connection with the shooting.

On Tuesday, a Northampton County jury found former cop John Heaney guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

Heaney was accused of driving drunk and killing motorcyclists Mike Zadoyko and Keith Michaelso in a crash in Bangor in July.  

Heaney said he was not drunk, and argued he suffered from a low blood sugar attack because of previous gastric bypass surgery.

Prosecutors said he should have known better.

Heaney is out of jail on bond, and will be sentenced next month.

The girl was treated for non-life threatening injuries at Lehigh Valley Hospital.

Superintendent Russ Mayo says security at the school was tightened on Thursday.
