According to police they responded to a call at a home on South New Castle Street where they found the suspect beating a woman with a blunt instrument. Police said when officers told the suspect to stop the attack, the suspect refused. Officers then opened fire, killing the suspect.
Police said the victim, a transgender woman, died from her injuries at the hospital. This incident caused the New Wilmington Area School District to temporarily lockdown at the request of police.
Neighbors called this incident an “unfortunate situation.” Update: State Police know that the victim is transgender but Stae police have only given us her dead name.
