Sterling Township, PA (WBNG Binghamton) A Pennsylvania man was sent to jail after state police said he poured gasoline on his girlfriend and shot at her five times.

Robert Brundage, Jr., 52, Moscow, PA, was charged with criminal attempt of homicide. He is at the Wayne County jail in lieu of $1 million bail.

Pennsylvania State Police said troopers responded to his home at 89 Woodland Drive in Sterling Township, Wayne County, Friday night for a domestic dispute report.

Police said Brundage and his girlfriend, Hope Hernandez, 47, Effort, PA, had been drinking at a party.

On the way home, they said Brundage almost forced Hernandez to drive off the road, and hit her.

The girlfriend tried calling 911, but the call didn't go through.

When they got home, police said Hernandez tried to leave.

That's when Brundage allegedly grabbed her hair, broke her glasses, grabbed her cell phone and poured gas on her. Police said he also fired five rounds from a pistol at her.

Hernandez wasn't hit and ran to a neighbor's house.

That neighbor called 911.

When troopers arrived on scene, they said Brundage fired several shots and they returned fire.

After several hours, Brundage came out and surrendered.
