A woman is dead and another person is fighting for their life in critical condition after a shooting in Ellwood City on Monday, according to the borough's mayor.
Mayor Anthony Court said this is the first homicide of the year in Ellwood City.
The shooting happened around 5:15 p.m. at an apartment building on First Street.
Sources tell Channel 11 the shooter and the victims knew each other.
"My friend at the bar, she's one of the owners, started to go out the door to go to her car, she came flying back in. She said, 'there's a shooter out there.' She said, 'there's police everywhere,'" recounted Anderson.
Court said police have someone in custody. Their name has not been released.
At last check, charges have not been filed.
A man who spoke to 11 News, but did not want to be identified said he watched through the bar window as a shirtless man backed away from the scene with his hands up.
"There was like four or five cops," he said. "[The man] went down on the ground. They handcuffed him and put him in the car. No shoes, socks, no T-shirt."
The names of the victims have not been released.
