Lititz PA Shooting – The “swatting” call has prompted the Lancaster County Police Department to search for the individual responsible for it. A swatting is a prank phone call that is intended to gain the attention of emergency personnel. According to Lititz police sergeant Jared Hahn, the possibility that this is a swatting episode is on par with the possibility that this is a genuine threat. At approximately 4:10 p.m. on Thursday, a man called 911 to report that he had just shot and murdered his wife at a residence located in the 600 block of South Cedar Street.
According to the Lititz police department. He claimed that he was in the backyard with a shotgun and would shoot other individuals if they got in his way. Additionally, he stated that his daughter was restrained inside the house. Andrea McLaughlin, a neighbor, stated, It’s like ‘oh my gosh, so the first thing I did was lock my doors because we don’t know what they’re looking for or who they’re looking for,” and she did not know who they were looking for.
A significant number of law enforcement personnel were dispatched to the scene, but they were unable to locate anyone there who was armed. Through the public address system of a police vehicle, the officers communicated with anyone was present inside the residence. A local citizen stepped forward and refuted the report that a shooting had taken place. The resident stated that they were ignorant of any issues that were occurring in the residence.
