A gunman, suspected in the deaths of six people and wounding of another in three towns across Montgomery County, Pennsylvania Monday morning, is on the loose. Police are actively searching for him and residents of one town are being asked to stay indoors, the Montgomery County district attorney said.
Bradley William Stone, 35 of Pennsburg, is considered armed and dangerous. District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said all of the victims are related to him.
Stone stands 5-feet-10-inches tall, weighs 195 lbs., has a red beard and mustache and close cropped hair. He is known to use a cane or walker to assist in moving, Verti Ferman said. He may also be wearing military fatigues — either green or brown.
Schools have closed authorities outside Philadelphia as authorities continue a manhunt for a former Marine reservist who killed his ex-wife and five members of her family in a shooting spree Monday night. Reports from Doylestown, PA say a man wearing camouflage attempted to carjack a vehicle with a knife. Police believed this could have been Bradley William Stone, the alleged shooter. The police swarmed the area, but at this time are saying the search in that area has been called off.
At this time, authorities do not know how Stone is traveling, as his car and cell phone have been recovered. They believe he may be wearing camouflage based on descriptions of eye witnesses. His two young daughters, who he spared during his killing spree are safe. The manhunt continues and decisions on closing schools will be made on a daily basis as the manhunt continues.
