A Lancaster man has been ordered to stand trial on charges of taking part in a racial shooting outside a Lancaster fast-food restaurant in October, authorities said. Prosecutors allege that Thomas Edward Deal, 19, was driving a car from which his brother Jason fired at another car outside a Lancaster Taco Bell on Oct. 24. No one was hurt. Three of the counts carry a hate crime provision because three of the five people in the other car were African Americans.
