One injured, one facing charges after shooting at Invictus in DuBois

DUBOIS — Multiple assault charges have been filed against a Clearfield man following the early Sunday morning shooting at the Invictus multi-recreational facility in DuBois.

City Police say 27-year-old Zachery Dodson is facing four counts of aggravated assault, three counts of simple assault, and two counts of terroristic threats.

Dodson is currently being held in the Jefferson County Jail.

Dodson reportedly shot 31-year-old Ani Myrtaj of DuBois in the face as Myrtaj stepped between Dodson and Invictus owner Joe Morrison.

Myrtaj is reportedly in stable condition at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh.

DuBois Police Chief Blaine Clark says the shooting happened after Dodson had been told to leave Invictus twice by Morrison.

During a struggle, Dodson reportedly pulled a gun and pointed it towards Morrison.

Even though Morrison was able to grab the gun, it discharged and struck Myrtaj in the face.

Reports say that Morrison was able to disarm Dodson and hold him to the ground until the police arrived.
