At least 3 killed in an active shooter situation in Falls Township

Residents have been issued a “Shelter in Place” alert, and people gathering for the St. Patrick’s parade have been advised to seek refuge in a nearby high school.



Update: Andre Gordon Jr., the individual accused of killing his stepmother, teenage sister, and the mother of his two children in Falls Township, has been apprehended following an extended standoff in Trenton.

The Saturday morning shooting in Falls Township, eastern Pennsylvania, led to the cancellation of a St. Patrick’s Day parade and the closure of a children’s theme park. Bucks County authorities implemented a shelter-in-place order for the area, which was later lifted by early afternoon. Police stated that the suspect, 26-year-old Andre Gordon, who is homeless, was acquainted with the shooting victims.

The Trenton Police Department reported that the suspect is suspected to be holed up in a residence in Trenton.

Fortunately, all residents were safely evacuated without injuries. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, along with the New Jersey State Police, the Mercer County Rapid Response Team, and the Mercer County Homicide Task Force, were providing assistance. The FBI was on standby.

The victims have been identified as his 52-year-old stepmother, Karen Gordon, and his 13-year-old sister, Kera Gordon. Bucks County District Attorney Jennifer Schorn stated that three other individuals, including a minor, were present in the home and managed to hide during the incident.

Around 9 a.m., he proceeded to a residence on Edgewood Lane, where officials report he entered forcibly and fatally shot 25-year-old Taylor Daniel, who was the mother of his two children.

According to authorities, four additional individuals were present in the house, and one person sustained injuries after being struck by Gordon with a rifle.
