A shooting during a meeting at a municipal building on Monday left three people dead, according to police. A witness says the gunman was tackled by a local official and shot with his own gun before being taken into custody. Authorities initially said that four people died during a press conference but revised the total down to three.
The shooting happened shortly before 7:30 p.m. during Ross Township's regular monthly meeting, Monroe County emergency management director Guy Miller said

In June, the Pocono Record wrote a story about what it said was an 18-year fight between the township and Newell over his property.
Monroe County Court in August 2012 sided with the township and ordered Newell to vacate and never again occupy or use the property unless he had the permits to do so. The report said Newell had been living out of a car, a 1984 Pontiac Fiero, and in abandoned buildings since being ordered to vacate.
