Suspect sought in 6 shooting deaths near Philadelphia

Police near Philadelphia were hunting a former Marine reservist who authorities say shot and killed six family members and wounded another in a Monday rampage that left dead bodies in three different homes.

A SWAT team storming of a house in Pennsburg, where Bradley William Stone, 35, was believed to be holed up, turned up nothing, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported, and authorities said Monday evening that they did not know his whereabouts.

“As I stand here right now, we do not know where he is,” Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said shortly after 6 p.m.

Later Monday night, however, police in neighboring Bucks County swarmed an area outside Doylestown after a reported attempted carjacking by a man said to have been dressed in military fatigues and similar in appearance to Stone. But there was no immediate confirmation that the carjacking suspect was Stone.

Ferman said Stone was known to use a cane or walker to assist him, but it’s possible he did not need them. Pennsburg is located 48 miles northwest of Philadelphia, and Doylestown is about 27 miles north of the city.
