Authorities in a Pennsylvania township have ordered some residents to shelter-in-place following several shootings that resulted in the deaths of three people on Saturday morning.

According to information from the Middletown Township Police Department, gunshot victims were located in Falls Township, about an hour outside of Philadelphia.

“It is domestic related. Three people were killed at two different residences,”Jeff Dence, chairman of the town’s board of supervisors, told CNN. He added that the suspect, 26-year-old Andre Gordon, carjacked another victim at another location following the shootings.

“The actor is armed and dangerous, and his location is unknown,” Mr Dence told the outlet. “We are investigating with the assistance of the district attorney’s office and the FBI.”

It’s believed that Mr Gordon is homeless but primarily stays in Trenton township. Mr Dence said that the suspect knew two of the victims but not the third from the carjacking.

The police department is monitoring its traffic and borders. “It does not seem that the shooter has entered our township limits,” a news release stated. “This is a fluid situation and we are asking the community to take some precautions.”

Residents of Middletown are being urged not to travel to Falls Township until further notice. Anyone that lives in the area bordering Falls Township should shelter-in-place, authorities said.

The local mall and children’s theme park are also closed. Several retailers have chosen to close their stores until more information is known about the incidents.

“We will continue to post updates as we have them,” the statement concluded.
