Johnstown Shooting Suspect

This is where it all ended about a mile and half away from where Sean is with a 2-vehicle crash.

This is what we saw as we were arriving on scene around 3:20, about 20 minutes or so after it happened police looking at these two sedans after they crashed and came to rest just beyond the intersection of Napoleon Street and Dibert Street in the Kernville section of Johnstown.

The driver of the one car police believe drove away from that shooting scene already wounded, down Route 56 and Napoleon before crashing into an innocent bystander.

Witnesses told me they heard a loud boom, then saw a lot of chaos as officers quickly arrived on scene.

“We have a vehicle that sped away from the scene. That vehicle has a secondary accident on napoleon and dibert street. We transported that individual from that accident that was shot twice, to the hospital in the trauma center.

No serious injuries were reported in the other vehicle involved.

But this appears to bring a chaotic end to what had been a months long break from a violent streak in Johnstown.

We had 8 people die in homicide cases in the city in the first 5 months of the year but it had been a quiet Summer, until now.
