Shooting outside Target leaves 1 dead in Pennsylvania

One person was killed and another wounded in a shooting outside a Target store in Pennsylvania on Sunday, according to reports.

The gun-down took place around 2:15 p.m. in the parking lot of the Lower Nazareth Commons strip mall in Lower Nazareth about 13 miles northeast of Allentown, WPIV-TV reported.

Police said an altercation erupted outside the Target there after at least two cars pulled into the lot, and the shots were fired, the outlet said.

Two victims were wounded, with one later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Eyewitness Hunter Phillips, 21, told The Morning Call that he and his father heard the gunshots while trying to find a parking spot.

Phillips said he saw a man leaning over the hood of a white car firing off shots at a black vehicle, whose driver was returning fire, the outlet reported.

Both gunmen later ran from the scene — one of them losing a shoe as he Fled, Phillips told the outlet, adding that a passenger in the black vehicle then fell out of the car and was covered in blood.

“He was so disoriented,” he said of the shot passenger. “He was really bleeding bad.”

More than a dozen police cars responded to the shopping center.

“I just came to get some shorts,” Phillips told the Call. “This is such a nice community, and something like this has to happen. I just honestly hope that guy is OK.”
