MORRISVILLE, PA (CBS) —Police in Bucks County say it’s a miracle nobody was hurt when man began firing shotgun shots at a trailer park Tuesday morning.
Police say Jimmy Stormant was armed with 12 gauge shotgun unloaded on the management office at the Pennwood Crossing Trailer Park in Morrisville, firing at least 10 times.
“Some of the bullets narrowly missed the employees,” said Falls Township police Lt. Henry Ward
He says the shotgun slugs traveled through the building and across Old Route 13, ending up dangerously close to kids waiting for the school bus.
“I can’t believe that anybody wasn’t hit,” he said.
Lt. Ward says the Stormant refused to drop the weapon when confronted by police, that’s when a family member tried to wrestle the gun away from him.
“The two of them got in a struggle and the officers tackled both of them and they were able to disarm the subject without anyone being hurt,” he said.
Stormant told police he did it because he was involved in a long, heated dispute with management.
Now, he’s cooling off at Bucks County Prison facing attempted homicide charges. His bail was set at $750,000.
