Police say a horse pulling an Amish buggy in Ronks, Lancaster County was shot by someone in a passing vehicle. It later died.

According to officials, an Amish buggy carrying five passengers was traveling north in the 100 block of North Ronks Road at around 9 p.m.

An unidentified car passed the buggy, and authorities said a loud noise described as sounding like a firecracker. The car did not stop.

When the buggy arrived home at a farm approximately one mile away, it was discovered that the horse was bleeding from the mouth.

A veterinarian was called, but the horse died before the vet was able to arrive.

A bullet hole was discovered on the left-hand side of the horse's chest area. None of the buggy passengers were injured.

Anyone with information may contact East Lampeter Township Police at 717-291-4676.
