Police say a male has been apprehended for a triple shooting during an altercation over gifts at his expected-child’s baby shower at a western Pennsylvania fire station Saturday.
Officials say the shooting started at a hall at the Kinloch Fire Department when the suspect 25-year-old Isiah Hampton got into a dispute with an unidentified woman who wanted him to transport the gifts from the party.

The woman slapped Hampton, who was reportedly being abusive, and he then shoved her.
Then some men tried to subdue Hampton before he allegedly fired off three shots from the ground.
A 23-year-old man, 19-year-old woman and a 16-year-old boy were struck by bullets, sources said.
All three victims are expected to survive, the report said.
Hampton told police that one of the victim’s was shot when the firearm unintentionally discharged as the men wrestled the gun away from him.
After the shooting, Hampton fled the fire hall with his partner, but was caught nearby by police.
He was charged with aggravated assault and recklessly endangering another person.
