Three Shot Dead in Bucks County, Pa.; Manhunt Underway for Fugitive Suspect; UPDATE: Suspect Takes Hostages; UPDATE: Suspect Now in Custody; Victims Identified as Family, Baby Mama

Posted on | March 16, 2024 | 1 Comment

Falls Township is about 25 north miles of Philadelphia, across the Delaware River from Trenton, New Jersey:

Authorities in Bucks County have identified a suspect in a series of deadly shootings that prompted a shelter-in-place order early Saturday morning.
Police say they are searching for 26-year-old Andre Gordon, who was last seen driving a stolen vehicle.
Police first responded to Viewpoint Lane in Falls Township just before 9 a.m. for a report of a shooting.
According to police, Gordon shot and killed two people at a home on the block and fled in a stolen vehicle. He then drove to Edgewood Lane around 9 a.m. and fatally shot a third person before fleeing the scene.
Then, around 9:15 a.m., police say he carjacked a vehicle at gunpoint in the parking lot of a Dollar General on Bristol Pike in Morrisville. The driver of that vehicle was not harmed.
According to police, it is believed that Gordon knew all of the victims who were fatally shot. He is also believed to currently be homeless and has ties to Trenton, New Jersey.
He was last seen operating a 2016, dark grey Honda CRV with a Pennsylvania plate reading KFR-1534. . . .
Shortly before noon Saturday, sources tell FOX 29’s Steve Keeley the carjacked Honda was located in Trenton, New Jersey, and that SWAT teams were responding to the scene. Falls Township police have since confirmed that the vehicle was located unoccupied in Trenton.

Just some random “gun violence” on a Saturday morning.

UPDATE 1:55 p.m. ET: Now holding hostages in Trenton:

A man accused of killing three people during a violent rampage in Falls Township, Pennsylvania Saturday morning is now believed to have barricaded himself inside of a home in Trenton with hostages. . . .
Police say Gordon has since barricaded himself inside a home on the 100 block of Miller Street in Trenton. Authorities say they received information that Gordon may have taken multiple people hostage inside.

Nothing to see here. Just another Saturday.

UPDATE 7:10 p.m. ET: The drama in Trenton has ended:

Trenton, New Jersey, Mayor Reed Gusciora provided more details after a suspect who police say shot and killed three people in a nearby Pennsylvania township was taken into custody.
Authorities initially believed suspect Andre Gordon was barricaded inside a Trenton home, but police located him walking along a street in the city.
“The people who were inside the house, they went upstairs. They still felt that he was still in the house. So when they got out of the house on the upstairs window, they told police that he was still downstairs. We couldn’t take any chances, and it was still a great resolution by the area law enforcement,” he said in an interview with CNN’s Polo Sandoval at the scene.
“They found him two blocks away walking down the street,” the mayor said.
“He fit the description and they approached him; he had no weapon on him, and he cooperated and gave his identity to police themselves,” he continued.

The two victims at the first shooting location, on Viewpoint Lane, were identified “as Gordon’s stepmother, 52-year-old Karen Gordon, and his 13-year-old sister Kera Gordon”:

Three other people, including another 13-year-old, were inside the home at the time but were able to hide as Gordon was searching for them, [Bucks County District Attorney Jennifer] Schorn said. . . .
Around 9:01 a.m., police responded to the unit block of Edgewood Lane in Levittown, where Gordon allegedly shot and killed 25-year-old Taylor Daniel, with whom he has two children.
Both children were home during the incident, according to investigators.
Gordon then allegedly bludgeoned Daniel’s mother with his assault rifle before fleeing.

Did the suspect have a prior criminal history?

Officials said they couldn’t yet speak to a motive for the attacks. While Gordon had had some minor brushes with the law, they were “nothing that would indicate that anything like this would happen,” Falls Township Police Chief Nelson Whitney said at a news conference.

Did these “minor brushes with the law” include domestic violence? A restraining order, perhaps? But never mind. Just more “violence against women” that feminists won’t mention, for some reason.
