    Default Shooting at Quakertown Walmart?

    Haven't heard or seen anything on the news. Can't find any info. Possibly BS?

    Supposedly happened about an hour ago and there's an APB for a black Mercedes.

    My wife was just there and saw a bunch of police cars in the parking lot.

    Man reported firing shotgun at vehicles on Rt. 309 in Richland Township

    A man in a Mercedes car fired a shotgun Thursday night at several cars in the area of the Walmart on Route 309 in Richland Township, police and witnesses said.

    Witnesses said they saw at least one car with its windows blown out about 7:30 p.m. near the Walmart, just north of Quakertown, and several police cars rushed to the scene.

    Richland police sent a radio alert to neighboring police agencies to report they were looking for man who was driving the Mercedes and carrying a shotgun. He also may have a handgun, police said.

    The Mercedes was described as a late-model light blue or gray sedan.

    The Bucks County Crime Watch webpage reports the township police are in the process of obtaining an arrest warrant for Brandon Grosso, 32, whose last known address was in the Telford area.

    "Grosso was involved in several confrontations in the surrounding communities [near Quakertown], with Grosso shooting a shotgun at one of the victim vehicles," Crime Watch says.

    "No injuries have been reported. Grosso is considered armed and dangerous."

    Police have asked that anyone with information on Grosso's whereabouts contact investigators at 215-536-9500.

    A witness said the gunman was seen in the area of the Walmart and the Five Guys restaurant on Route 309, and the Yum Yum Bake Shop on West Broad Street, Route 313.

    Probably pissed off that Walmart didn't have any 22.

    He opened another location? He's been here in Lancaster for decades.

    The sour cream are to die for. Not to kill for, but I'd defend them with deadly force.

    They have the idiot in custody. Article says "Police asked the public to come forward if they had seen Grosso."

    Really? I couldn't find any info anywhere outside of the Facebook post my wife showed me. She was walking around the damn parking lot 10 minutes after this happened, and the police weren't warning anyone. No mention of it on the township 1620 AM radio info station. Nothing on the radio or TV news until late last night.

    You'd think if there was someone on the loose who shot at people, they could maybe get the word out and warn everyone?



    Police arrest man accused of shooting vehicle with shotgun in Quakertown Walmart parking lot

    QUAKERTOWN, Pa. - A shooting late Thursday night at a Walmart parking lot in Quakertown ended with one man behind bars.

    A woman in Quakertown was driving when the confrontation with another driver began. The road rage quickly escalated, until one driver used his gun. That led the Richland Township Police Department on a hunt to find the man.

    According to Barb Lavin, she had just dropped off her daughter at work. She was then driving home with her 22-year-old son in the car when everything started. According to Lavin, an aggressive driver behind her wasn't giving her vehicle space. She says he tried to pass her then shot at her car.

    "We get to the stop sign at the intersection where the Walmart is. We make a left, as soon as we're making that left we just hear 'bang' right there. I turn around. We were shot," said Sean Larvin.

    Because of the sound, at first the family says they thought the man had hit them seconds later realizing he'd used his weapon.

    Police now have the driver, 32-year-old Brandon Grosso, in custody.

    Thursday night police in Bucks County asked the public to come forward if they had seen Grosso or his late model Mercedes Benz sedan.

    They say Grosso had been involved in several confrontations in the surrounding areas and called him 'armed and dangerous'.

    Police arrested Grosso at a motel in Milford Township, Bucks County.

    "I believe in guardian angels so I think a guardian angel was watching out for me. I'm just thankful it wasn't an inch lower," said Barb Lavin.
