Case

On August 11, 2022, at 11:50 pm, Swatara Township Police were dispatched to a home in the 4900 block of Cumberland Street for a report of shots fired.

Upon arrival officers discovered that unknown assailant(s) had fired multiple rounds into the home from the vicinity of the street.  Two victims, one 4 years old and the other 6 years old were struck by gunfire.  Both victims received serious injuries and were transported to a local hospital where they are being treated for their wounds.

Swatara Officers and Detectives are interviewing adult witnesses who were home at the time of the shooting.  We are aggressively pursuing leads in this case and ask that anyone who has a camera in the area of this incident to contact Police. 

It is believed this was a targeted attack and the two victims who were shot were not the intended target.  Additional information will be released pending further investigation.
