An undercover drug buy gone awry Wednesday afternoon resulted in gunfire in Hempfield Township, directly across Route 30 from Westmoreland Mall.

The shooting and a subsequent high-speed chase led to the arrest of James Paul Henderson, 37, of Greensburg RD3, who was identified by the office of New Kensington District Judge Frank Pallone.

Henderson was apprehended by state police three miles from the shooting in the village of Bovard only a few minutes after the 1 p.m. incident. No one was injured.
