Original story:

A man shot and killed his parents at a retirement center in Chester County, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday. He also shot at his ex-wife but she escaped unhurt, police said. A massive police response is underway as the shooter is on the loose.

The incident took place at Bellingham retirement community in East Goshen Township at around 6:30 p.m. EDT.

Bruce Rogal, 59, of Glen Moore, is wanted on charges of homicide and attempted homicide, Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan said, ABC6 reported. Rogal is believed to be driving a 2002 silver Honda Odyssey minivan with the Pennsylvania license plate ENN 3549 and is considered “armed and extremely dangerous.”

The accused received a notice Wednesday afternoon stating his divorce was finalized and that the family home was awarded to his ex-wife.

He went to his ex-wife's home in West Bradford Township around 5:45 p.m. EDT and fired six shots at her. She was unhurt.

“She was changing oil in a car in the driveway of her residence. He drove by and shot at her. He did not hit her, he did hit several other houses nearby,” said Hogan, CBS Local reported.

He then drove to Bellingham and fatally shot his parents — William and Nancy Rogal, both in their late 80s — at their apartment at the retirement community.

Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police issued a lockdown in a two-mile radius of the Bellingham facility and heavy police presence was seen in the surrounding area, including police helicopters.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is also assisting in the investigation. The East Goshen Elementary School was set up as a gathering place for first responders, Patch.com reported. 

Several roads including N. Chester Road, Hibberd Lane, and Boot Road were shut down. The retirement home staff was locked down for hours as a swarm of police, ATF and ambulances responded to the facility.

Mike Galczyk, whose daughter Cayley is a server at Bellingham said, "She’s texting us saying she’s hiding inside with her team. She told us to stay safe out here,” NBC 5 reported.

Galczyk said his daughter wasn't supposed to work Wednesday but was called in to cover a shift. When he was a few blocks away from picking her up, he was stopped by police roadblocks.

Schools within the roadblocks were locked down as a precaution. According to a message from the district's superintendent, some students were stuck inside West Chester East High School for some time. The district officials had to coordinate with police for their release. The scene was finally secured after 10 p.m. EDT.
