Six family members are shot dead in Pennsylvania

SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – Pennsylvania police on Tuesday searched for an American war veteran suspected of killing six family members, including a 14 year old in a shooting spree in near Philadelphia. The hunt for Bradley William Stone, 35, was focused on and around Pennsburg, about 80 km northwest of Philadelphia, the Montgomery County district attorney said.

Stone, who lives in Pennsburg, was a suspect in the shooting deaths on Monday of his ex-wife, his former mother-in-law, former grandmother-in-law, former sister-in-law and two other family members, District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman told journalists.

“As we stand here right now, we don’t know where he is,” she said.

Stone took his two young daughters from his ex-wife’s home but left them safe with a neighbour, Ferman said.

It was Pennsylvania’s second recent high-profile manhunt after a seven-week chase to capture survivalist Eric Frein, 31, accused of killing a state trooper in a sniper attack in September outside a state police barracks.
