Three people were shot and wounded at a baby shower in Pennsylvania Saturday evening after an argument over gifts, Lower Burrell Police Chief John Marhefka said in a press briefing.
Police officers were dispatched to the Kinloch Volunteer Fire Department in Lower Burrell, Pennsylvania, shortly after 6 p.m. for a shooting inside the fire hall.
“This was not an active shooter event, but rather an isolated family incident during a baby shower,” he said.
A preliminary investigation showed the incident began as a family argument about gifts at the baby shower. It escalated into a physical fight and then gunfire when the “suspect introduced a nine-millimeter semiautomatic handgun” and fired three shots into the crowd of about 25 friends and family, the chief said.
