A murder suspect in a Potter County shooting was arrested Sunday in Mount Joy, after turning himself into state police.

After the shooting, Riehl called his father early Sunday morning, at 5:15 a.m., and told him he wanted to meet for breakfast, the Leader-Enterprise reported.
Father and son ate breakfast and Riehl told his father he had something to tell him.
Greg Riehl told his dad that he had been drinking at a friend's house and thinks he passed out.
When he came to, no one was around. He went into his friend's house and found the friend, Palmieri, in bed with his girlfriend. Riehl told his dad he got angry and shot his friend, the Leader-Enterprise reported.
"Riehl told his father he didn't flee Potter County but that he wanted to see his dad before he turned himself in, so he drove to Lancaster County," the news organization reported.

  2. I'm wondering what the story is with that tattoo.
