“A lot of confusion,” Captain Tom Davidson told Eyewitness News reporter Matt Petrillo. “From what we could tell, there was a party going on. Not sure exactly at this point what the location was: Was it outside, inside? We don’t know that at this time, but it appears as though there were six shell casings that were found on the highway so it appears as though it did happen outside.”
The shooting occurred just a few blocks away from Temple’s main campus, causing the school to issue an alert urging students to avoid the area.MORE NEWS: Chick-Fil-A Earns Top Spot For Customer Satisfaction In America For Eighth Straight Year: Report
