EATON TOWNSHIP, WYOMING COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) – Four people, including the shooter, are dead in a shooting at a Weis Market.
State Police are calling the shooting a murder-suicide.
Officials have released the names of those involved. The shooter is listed as 24-year-old Randy Stair of Dallas, and the victims are 25-year-old Victoria Brong of Factoryville, 47-year-old Brian Hayes of Springville, and 63-year-old Terry Sterling of South Montrose.
Police were called to the Weis Market on Route 29 in Eaton Township, Wyoming County around 1 am Thursday morning. The store was closed at the time.
Police say Stair was inside the market working since 11:00 pm on Wednesday. About two hours later, he grabbed two pistol shotguns that he had with him in a duffel bag. They say he began shooting, ultimately killing three of his co-workers.
According to police, he continued firing shots throughout the store before turning the gun on himself. One witness was able to get out of the store and call 911.
Authorities called in a bomb squad to investigate the alleged suspect’s car in the parking lot but ruled the scene all clear.
The PSP expects to hold a news briefing later today.
