PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – On Talk Radio 1210 WPHT, Dom Giordano spoke with Superintendent Mike Chitwood of the Upper Darby Police Department about Friday’s shooting at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Darby.
Chitwood indicated that the suspect, Richard Plotts, has a long history of violence.
“This guy obviously has some very, very serious mental health issues and violent tendencies, that’s the issue. Here’s a guy that’s barred from a homeless shelter. How do you get barred from a homeless shelter, because you’re scared to death of him? I don’t know if he’s given a statement yet. I don’t think he has. It’s anybody’s guess why he went off,” he said.
