READING, Pa. -

Two men have been apprehended in connection with a home invasion-shooting last year.

Police arrested Jonathan Landron and Alexander Cruz-Cintron in the 1100 block of Chestnut Street in Reading Thursday evening.

Police said they had warrants for both men in connection with a home invasion-shooting in the 500 block of South 18th Street in November. A 48-year-old man was shot but survived.

When officers arrived Thursday night, police said Cruz-Cintron ran up to the roof and started maneuvering across rooftops.

They said officers eventually cornered him, and a fire truck had to be brought in to get everyone down.
