A shooting has taken place in Pennsylvania, this time at a judge’s office in Masontown.
Multiple victims, including a police officer, were reported to be wounded this afternoon at the court office of Judge Daniel Shimshock.
Helicopters and ambulances were dispatched to the scene, though the exact count of wounded is unknown at this time.
According to the Observer-Reporter, Masontown Police Sergeant Scott Miller was shot in the hand, and a second officer fatally shot the gunman.
A witness -identifying himself only as “Todd”- was in the court lobby, when a blonde woman ran into the building, pursued by an individual who was shooting at her.
The woman was reportedly hit in the arm, prompting Todd to use his belt as a tourniquet to slow blood loss.
“He (the gunman) was targeting her but got other people,” Todd said.
As outlined by Pennsylvania statute 18 Pa.C.S. § 91, it is illegal to bring a firearm into a court facility.
