Teenager shot dead at Pennsylvania Halloween hayride event, suspect on run: Police

"I think it's a terrible shame. Anybody could have been hurt."

A Catholic high school student was killed and another teenager was injured when gunfire erupted at a popular Halloween hayride attraction in a Pittsburgh suburb, and police said the suspected gunman remained on the run Monday.

The shooting unfolded around 8:15 p.m. Saturday at the Haunted Hills Hayride, about 13 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, according to the Allegheny County State Police.

Police said gunfire broke out near the ticket booth about 15 minutes before the annual charity event was set to open for the first night in a run scheduled to go through Halloween.

Up to 100 people, including parents and children, were waiting to get into the event when multiple shots were fired, sparking a chaotic scene of people scrambling to get out of harm's way, according to police.

Lt. Venerando Costa of the Allegheny County Police Department said at a news conference that two 15-year-old boys were shot and taken to an area hospital, where one was pronounced dead and the other was initially in critical condition.

The boy killed was identified as Steven Eason of Wilmerding, Pennsylvania, according to an Allegheny County medical examiner's office.

Eason was shot in the chest and stomach when he and his friends witnessed the other shooting victim, who they casually knew, involved in a confrontation with the gunman and attempted to intervene, Allegheny County Police said in a statement. The second victim, the boy Eason tried to help, was shot in the shoulder and was in stable condition on Monday, police said.

The wounded teenager's name was not released.

Costa said witnesses described the suspected gunman as Black, 15 to 17 years old, 5 foot 9, with short hair and wearing dark blue cargo shorts and carrying a black backpack.

Costa told ABC News on Monday morning that investigators are still working to identify the gunman and asked anyone with information on the suspect to call the police.

Witnesses said the suspect fled toward the parking lot but it was unclear if he left the scene on foot or in a vehicle, police said.

No other injuries were reported.

Eason was a sophomore at Central Catholic High School in Pittsburgh, school officials said in a post on Facebook.

"It is with deep sorrow that we share with you news of the sudden and unexpected death of Steven Eason," school officials said in a statement, adding that counselors will be made available to students this week.

"What goes through my mind when a 15-year-old gets shot at a hayride? I think it's a terrible shame," Costa said. "Anybody could have been hurt."

Zombie Paintball Locations for Haunted Fall Fun

Halloween brings about lots of spooky fun including the new attraction based activity zombie paintball.  Funtober is building a list of haunted attractions which have featured zombie paintball as one of their activities.  Paintball is played with a marker (gun) and paintballs in either an indoor arena or outdoor field or forest.  There are a growing number of paintball and laser tag centers around the country with many partnering with haunted house attractions during Halloween.  Zombie hunts or Zombie safaris are played against a mass of walking dead hordes in a combat situation.

Last Major Update: June 20, 2020

Many facilities use a hayride or war wagon type truck to bring the soldiers into the field or woods where the zombies can attack them.  Sometimes the markers are mounted on the wagons while at other locations the guns are held separately by the customers.  It is not unusual to begin with 25 paintballs but use 100-150 during actual combat.  This activity is lots of fun for both the zombies and combatants.

We list zombie paintball location in each state.  If you know of a location we missed please drop us an email and we will add the attraction. Our new updated  TOP 100 HAUNTED HOUSES FOR HALLOWEEN 2018   .

Niles Scream Park lets you know that it’s not responsible for dry-cleaning bills when visitors wet their pants. If that level of scared sounds like your kind of good time, then you’ll want to climb aboard the park’s Dark Terror-tory Haunted Hayride. Once safely seated in the wagon, guests are pulled past more than 30 sets on a mile-long trail. Part horror and part humor, the scenes work together to tell a story. The narrative, which changes every year, draws guests in and makes them part of the show. Tickets for the hayride cost $8 per person. For the hayride as well as access to the entire park, combination tickets cost $30 ($35 on Saturdays in October). Other attractions include a haunted house, haunted corn maze, and an experience called “Hooded,” during which thrill-seekers are alone and blindfolded.

For most of the year, the woods around Pinehaven Farm are peaceful and void of evil. But every fall, brave souls gather to test their courage at the Dead End Hayride , the self-billed “ultimate horror experience.” The journey’s hair-raising scenes are made even more so by cryogenic blasts, explosions, and pyrotechnic displays. If you manage to make it past the horrifying creatures prowling among the trees, you’re welcome to rest at either the Pinehaven Motor Inn or Sunnyvale Asylum. Don’t let your guard down, though. Creepy clowns have been known to follow visitors out of the woods. The Friday and Saturday before Halloween, general admission tickets cost $30 at the door.

The werewolves aren’t the only ones attracted to the scent of human flesh. While the good witches do their best to keep guests safe, zombies and other unknown creatures inhabit the forest. Try your hardest to get away, but the spirits of dead lumberjacks want to hack your wagon in two to ensure you never leave.

Indianapolis’s largest and most famous haunted hayride doubles as the star attraction at Hanna Haunted Acres.

Miller’s Thrillers is a long-time favorite place to be terrified in Middle Tennessee. They have a haunted wood, an entertainment zone, and then there are the zombies that need shooting. Yep, they have paintball zombie shooting for the fearless. And don’t forget their stage extravaganza with stilt walkers, a zombie drum line, jugglers, music lasers and fireworks.

This haunted woods attraction is not for children under the age of 10 or for the faint of heart. The story you are about to read is based on eyewitness testimonies and Maury County law enforcement documents. Just west of Spring Hill TN there was a plot of farmland rich with phosphate minerals. In 1952 the Jameson family allowed an excavation on this here property. Now legend says that the mining company knew of safety hazards and unsafe mines but greed made them ole boys turn a blind eye. Local folks were employed in the mines and some even lived on this here property. Hick, redneck, & rough they were. Dedicated to their job until their dying day when a rumble from mine #7 come a callin. They tried to escape but was met with a closed hatch. The mining company deemed it a freak accident but still went bankrupt. The Jameson family mysteriously disappeared as well. The county thought everyone left the property for good but locals speak of something much different. After those minerals were extracted, it left the land abandoned and worthless. These unknown parts were a perfect hideaway for the rest of the old miners to remain and make a settlement. Whatever they found around the phosphate digs was put to good use. This environment was much different than the norm. Your about to witness what life is like after 70 years of backwoods livin. Welcome to Hillbilly Hollar!

10 Haunted Hayrides In The U.S. That Give Haunted Houses A Run For Their Money

These haunted hayrides promise gnarled trees, blood-curdling monsters, ghoulish ghosts, and more, making them more haunted than horror houses.

  • Haunted hayrides have evolved from a simple means of transportation to a popular American tradition, offering a blend of natural and science fiction elements for a distorted sense of reality.
  • These 10 haunted hayrides in the U.S. are some of the best and scariest haunted attractions, rivaling haunted houses in popularity.
  • Each hayride offers its own unique spooky experience, from headless horsemen and terrifying creatures to psychotic clowns and humor-infused horror. Choosing just one hayride may be a tough decision.

Hayrides weren't always haunted. The initial idea of the hayride was coined when workers on farms were transported back to the barn after spending full days working in the fields. Since it was so enjoyable, some farmers started commercial hayrides which carried visitors to various parts of the farm.

After that, in typical Halloween style, some started to think that haunted hayrides would be even cooler than haunted houses... And they were right. The haunted hayride developed into an American tradition that blended the natural environment into a science fiction one, distorting the rider's sense of reality.

Today, haunted hayrides are so popular that these 10 haunted hayrides in the U.S. give haunted houses a run for their money and have quickly become some of the best, spookiest, and scariest haunted attractions in the U.S .

House Republicans seek documents from White House over Biden's involvement in Hunter Biden's refusal to comply with congressional subpoena

By Melissa Quinn

December 27, 2023 / 4:22 PM EST / CBS News

Washington — The Republican leaders of the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees on Wednesday asked the White House to turn over information about President Biden's alleged involvement in his son Hunter Biden's decision not to comply with a congressional subpoena for a deposition, expanding its impeachment inquiry into the president.

In a letter to White House counsel Edward Siskel, Reps. James Comer and Jim Jordan requested documents and communications between White House staff in the Executive Office of the President and Hunter Biden or his lawyers regarding his scheduled deposition, which was supposed to happen on  Dec. 13.

But Hunter Biden defied the subpoena from the Oversight Committee for a closed-door interview with lawmakers, appearing briefly outside the U.S. Capitol to reiterate that he would answer questions only in a public setting.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre  told reporters later that day that the president was "familiar with" what his son was going to say in his statement.

Hunter Biden Addresses Being Called To Testify To House Oversight Committee On Capitol Hill

"In light of Ms. Jean-Pierre's statement, we are compelled to examine the involvement of the President in his son's scheme to defy the Committees' subpoenas," Comer, who leads the Oversight Committee, and Jordan, chairman of the Judiciary panel, said in their letter to Siskel.

They argued that Jean-Pierre's remark suggests that Mr. Biden "had some amount of advanced knowledge" that Hunter Biden would refuse to comply with the subpoena for testimony.

The Republicans set a Jan. 10 deadline for the White House to provide the records regarding Hunter Biden's deposition. They are also seeking documents from staff in the Executive Office of the President related to a comment Mr. Biden made on Dec. 6 denying that he interacted with his son and brother's foreign business associates.

Comer and Jordan said the president's "advanced awareness" that his son would not answer questions from lawmakers behind closed doors "raises a troubling new question that we must examine: whether the President corruptly sought to influence or obstruct the Committees' proceeding by preventing, discouraging, or dissuading his son from complying with the Committees' subpoenas."

"Such conduct could constitute an impeachable offense," they wrote.

Beyond Jean-Pierre's comment, it's unclear how much Mr. Biden knew about his son's plan not to appear for the deposition. Hunter Biden told reporters on Dec. 13 that he would answer at a public hearing "any legitimate questions" from Comer and Oversight Committee members, and accused the GOP leaders of the three committees conducting the impeachment inquiry of "distorting the facts."

Republicans have been investigating Hunter Biden's foreign business dealings for nearly a year and claim Mr. Biden was enriched by his son and brother's overseas work and accepted bribes. They have produced no evidence of wrongdoing by the president or that he benefited financially from his family's business ventures.

Still, then-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced in September that he would be launching a formal impeachment inquiry into the president, and the House's GOP majority voted earlier this month to formalize the probe. 

Comer and Jordan said they will pursue proceedings to hold Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress for defying the subpoena from Republicans.

My City on a Plate | Vladimir Mukhin on Moscow, Rye Bread, and Russian Stereotypes

The man behind moscow's best restaurant shows us the city through his eyes.

In this series, we speak to some of the most talented, bold, and creative chefs on the planet about the cities they hold closest, and the sounds, smells, and flavours that characterise them.

This week, we speak to Vladimir Mukhin, chef-proprietor of White Rabbit (pictured above) – arguably Moscow’s best restaurant , and this year’s no. 15 in the prestigious World’s 50 Best list. A fifth-generation chef, Mukhin is both a fearless reinventor, and tireless protector, of Russian cuisine, travelling the length and breadth of the world’s largest nation to discover old methods, dishes and ingredients. As such, his cooking stands alone on the global stage for its wit, originality, and sense of heritage and preservation.

Born in the Caucasus, but now settled in Moscow , Mukhin is a chef entirely comfortable with leading the vanguard of his national cuisine. With us, he spoke of his love of Russian stereotypes, pickle brine, honey cake, and everything that makes Moscow a sprawling, enigmatic, and misunderstood city.

haunted zombie hayride attack

All Russians are forced to smile at the stereotypes foreigners have about Moscow. People think that there are bears walking around in the streets, or that a typical Russian is a huge man in a fur hat who drinks vodka. Everyone thinks that it is winter in Moscow all the time – tomorrow it’s 30ºC! But that’s not to say that a huge man won’t be strolling around with a bottle of vodka and a bear in tow.

When I’m away from Moscow, I miss the basics – bread, lard, pickled cucumber. However, I never let my melancholy get in the way of invention. I remember one time: I was cooking dinner on the tropical islands of Richard Branson, and I realized that my menu was missing pickles. The difficulty was that in that moment, I was sailing from one island to the other, and the boat did not have enough salt reserves. So I did what I had to do, and salted cucumbers in sea water.

The dream of any chef is to successfully capture the tastes of his childhood. For me, I was forged by my grandmother’s cooking – I still remember her honey cake so clearly. At the restaurant, we have reinvented her honey cake into something completely different, akin to the cuisine of White Rabbit. But alongside it, we serve my grandmother’s honey cake exactly as I remember it: multilayered, dense, sweet.

Moscow is a city of many scents. In the late summer, it’s the aroma of apples from the neighboring Kolomensky garden; in the market, where my working day often begins, it’s the aroma of seasonal fruits and berries. In the centre of the city, it’s the smell of bread, coffee, and cigarette smoke. I think even the smoke smells like bread – it’s a very Russian smell. The unmistakable scent of wheat with nutty notes, and the sour aroma of rye, just like the dense Borodinsky bread we are so famed for.

haunted zombie hayride attack

If you’re after a true foodie experience in Moscow, go to Nikolskaya Street. That’s where you’ll find our gastro-market, Volkug Sveta, and a wide range of places to eat – from Hawaiian, to Thai, to Turkish. Volkug Sveta has turned Nikolskaya Street into Moscow’s main tourist area almost single-handedly. Walking through it in the morning is one of my favourite things to do in Moscow ; it recharges my batteries, and puts me in a good mood for the whole day – I would recommend that you do the same.

haunted zombie hayride attack

My interpretation of Moscow on a plate is my Bread with Birch Bast course. A bast is a soft layer of wood between the bark and the trunk of a tree. Previously, it would be dried in a stove, ground and added to the bread flour, out of poverty and necessity. But I tried it and realized that it’s surprisingly delicious – unusual, but delicious. To me, the course is the taste of Moscow: lush, rosy, with a thin bitterness. Another such course would be our Okroshka, served with cucumber brine and white grapes – it’s a mixed-up, sharp, unique dish, just like Moscow.

Vladimir Mukhin is the head chef of White Rabbit in Moscow. Find out more about what he’s up to on their website .

The first trolleybus rolled out on the streets of Moscow in the 1930s. It had a wooden frame, a metal cover, and a low maximum speed by today's standards: 50 km/hr. Since that time, many different trolleybuses were designed in Russia . Among them were the world’s most numerous trolleybus, rare double-decker models, and the first ever “trolleybus train.”
