the gist Three people were shot and injured at a baby shower in Pennsylvania on Saturday night after an argument over gifts, the Lower Burrell Police Chief said.
“It was not an active shooting event, but rather an isolated family incident at a baby shower,” Lower Burell Police Chief John Marhefka said at a press conference. The origin of the shots? Family argument over gifts at the baby shower. It escalated into a brawl and then gunfire when the “suspect introduced a nine-millimeter semi-automatic handgun” and fired three shots into the crowd of about 25 friends and family.
Three people were injured in the shooting: a man of 23 years, a woman of 16 years and a boy of 16 years. The suspect aged 25 years old was arrested by the police. He was in place in police custody.
