Authorities say a suspect is in custody following a shooting at a baby shower at a western Pennsylvania fire hall that wounded three people.

Police in Lower Burrell in Westmoreland County were called to the Kinloch Fire Department shortly after 6 p.m. and arrested a suspect leaving the fire hall.

Police said a family argument turned physical and the suspect pulled out a handgun and opened fire.

Police said a 23-year-old man, a 19-year-old woman and a 16-year-old youth were wounded and were taken to hospitals with injuries not considered life-threatening.

A preliminary investigation showed the incident began as a family argument about gifts at the baby shower, says CNN

“This was not an active shooter event, but rather an isolated family incident during a baby shower,” the police chief said

The Tribune-Review reports that the 25-year-old suspect faces aggravated assault and reckless endangering charges.
