PA:Charges against Terry Meyers Dismissed in Shooting of Orsino Von Thurman

BEDFORD, Pa. – Charges are being dismissed against a Schellsburg-area man charged with shooting a Black Lives Matter activist in the face in a high-profile 2020 altercation.

Bedford County District Attorney Lesley Childers-Potts issued her decision to drop charges against Terry Myers on Thursday – one day after he appeared at a preliminary hearing to testify against Milwaukee native Orsino Von Thurman, who was shot in the face with a shotgun in the August 2020 incident.

Childers-Potts said Myers’ testimony was “crucial” to obtaining a conviction against Thurman, who is accused of firing at Myers. She called Thurman – who has a felony record – a “danger to society” in Bedford and beyond.
