JOHNSTOWN, Pa. —
One person was taken into custody after shots were fired outside a Cambria County police station Thursday morning.
Authorities said a lone gunman exchanged fire with officers at the Richland Township Police Department in Johnstown about 10:30 a.m. Thursday.
Detective Kevin Lehman of the Richland Police Department said the state police were called in to handle the incident and investigate.
Cambria County Coroner Dennis Kwiatkowski said he believes the suspect suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
A motive for the shooting wasn’t immediately known. State police, who are investigating the shooting, have not commented.
The police station is near the University of Pittsburgh Johnstown campus and Richland school buildings.
Officials said the buildings in the school district were briefly locked down after the shooting, and students were kept inside for lunch and recess.
