Workplace mass shooting leaves 2 dead, 3 injured

CHESTER, PA – A workplace shooting at Delaware County Linen in Chester, Pennsylvania, resulted in five people being shot. Two of the people impacted by the shooting died from their injuries, as revealed by the district attorney.

During a press conference, District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer explained that a disgruntled employee entered the linen shop and fired at five individuals. The shooting led to the death of two employees, while the remaining three victims are in serious condition at the Crozer-Chester Medical Center.

The gunman reportedly tried to flee from the scene of the mass shooting. However, they were apprehended by police in Trainer, Delaware County. Stollsteimer confirmed that a handgun was the weapon used in the shooting. The gunfire broke out just before 9 a.m. on the 2600 block of West 4th Street.

The violent incident transpired both inside and outside the linen store, with one victim killed in each location. Describing the incident as a “tragedy,” the District Attorney lamented the high number of such incidents across the U.S. He voiced concern over the abundance of firearms in the possession of unfit individuals.

Investigators are waiting to publically reveal identity of the alleged shooter who is responsible for these shooting-related deaths and injuries.
