More on the Shooting in Allentown

A police negotiating team is talking with the gunman, who is in a carriage house between 51 and 57 Trinity Place, five doors in from the corner of Elmwood. He is apparently armed with a shotgun. A SWAT team is on standby, in case negotiations fail. (Police have already used tear gas.) An officer at ECMC with the wounded policeman tells me he was hit with five or six pellets of buckshot in the face, but should be okay.
