As Glenside Local reported yesterday, early on Sunday, September 23, the Abington Township Police Department received multiple calls about gunshots. Callers could not determine the precise location of the gunshots, but they were generally coming from the Ardsley, North Hills, Glenside and Roslyn sections of Abington. These reports were corroborated by witness accounts and the recovery of shell casings.
A suspect was identified and taken into custody by Cheltenham Township Police for a mental health warrant. This male was located in Philadelphia and was in possession of a weapon consistent with the shell casings recovered in Abington.
Later in the day Abington Police identified another suspect, who was then taken into custody on an unrelated warrant. This suspect was also in possession of a weapon consistent with the gunshot evidence located in Abington. The Abington Township Police are still investigating this incident and are awaiting results from ballistic tests prior to any charges being filed.
If you have any information regarding this incident, please contact Abington Township Police Detective Robert Hill, Jr. at 267-536-1101 or email@example.com.
