(Zion Grove) -- Patrons wrestled a man to the ground after police say he shot a woman sitting at the bar inside a fish and game club in Schuylkill County.

The shooting occurred around 8:00 p.m. yesterday at the Shenandoah Fish & Game Protective Association Club.

Authorities have charged 62-year-old Steven Brobst, of Sugarloaf, with attempted homicide, aggravated assault and firearms violations.

He's held on $500,000 bail pending a preliminary hearing.

The 51-year-old woman was flown to a hospital. Her condition is not known.

There was no record available showing whether Brobst has an attorney.
