Police searching for suspected gunman after Luzerne County shooting
Police swarmed a busy shopping center along Route 315 in Pittston Township Wednesday afternoon after reports of a shooting at a nail salon. According to officers, a man walked into the salon in the Pittston Crossing shopping center, and shot a woman inside. He then took off.
The victim was taken to the hospital. We don't have information on her condition.
Police searched the immediate area and had not located the alleged shooter as of Wednesday evening, prompting a Dupont borough council member to issue a shelter-in-place order.
Traffic along State Route 315 was significantly backed up as emergency crews from around the area arrived. Traffic appeared to be moving normally a few hours later.
