The arrow entered Mack’s skull through the top of his head and exited the rear of his skull. The arrow remained in place until it was removed by emergency veternarian personnel at PETS in Lancaster.
Witnesses reported seeing a silhouette of a person standing in the rear yard of Mack’s residence. When the witness saw Mack sitting on the front porch with an arrow in his head, the person in the rear yard ran toward N. Second St. Mack survived the attack and is back at home.
