One person is dead and three people are injured after a shooting inside a Montgomery County bowling alley on Saturday night, 2/20. It happened around 6:45 PM at the Our Town Alley, formerly Facenda Whitaker Lanes, located on the 2900 block of Swede Road in East Norriton. Police believe there was one shooter who fled the area. One person was pronounced dead at the scene. Three others were taken to the hospital. East Norriton Township Police Chief Brandon Pasquale said, "We don't know the nature of the injuries, we don't know male or female or any of their ages." He said there may be additional victims who were transported to the hospital in private vehicles. There is no word on what led to the gunfire or a possible motive. East Norriton Township Police Department and the Montgomery County Detectives are investigating.

UPDATE: The fatal victim has been identified by his wife as 29-year-old Frank Wade of West Philadelphia. He is a husband and father of two. (see picture below)

UPDATE:Police have identified 17-year-old Jamel Barnwell as the suspect in the shooting. He is being considered armed and dangerous. Barnwell and two other men entered the bowling alley and an altercation with Wade broke out. Barnell fired 15 shots. The three men then fled. Four of Wade's family was shot and injured; 31-year-old man, a 21-year-old man, a 19-year-old man and a 26-year-old man. (see picture below)

A Lebanon County, Pennsylvania police officer is facing federal charges for his involvement in the U.S. Capitol riot on January 6. Joseph Fischer of the North Cornwall Township police is charged with obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder, entering a restricted building, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and obstruction of justice. Fischer was caught on video entering the building and getting into a "physical encounter" with a police officer. The next day he wrote on Facebook that there had been "some minor destruction and a few things were stolen" but things were "98% peaceful." The post also said "we pushed police back about 25 feet. Got pepper balled and OC sprayed, but entry into the Capital was needed to send a message that we the people hold the real power."

North Cornwall Township police said in a statement that Fischer is suspended without pay. "Neither the township nor any officer or employee endorses, accepts, or condones any alleged participation in a crime against the United States of America nor any act committed by an individual who may have illegally breached the United States Capitol on January 06, 2021," the statement said.

A woman in a wheelchair was rescued from a fire in a home in Montgomery County on Saturday afternoon, 2/20. Firefighters were called around 2:30 p.m. to the 500 block of King Road in Perkiomen Township. Two people had already escaped from the house, but a woman in a wheelchair was trapped on the second floor. Fire crews were able to rescue the woman. She was taken to the hospital. Officials believe the fire may have started near the garage area.
