Logan Township Police are investigating what they said “appears to be a drug deal/robbery gone awry,” after one person was shot Sunday.
According to Logan Township Police, their officers, along with Altoona City Police and Pennsylvania State Police were dispatched to Bellmeade Drive and S. Dartmouth Lane for reports of gunshots just before 7:45 p.m. Police said as they responded to the area, they received calls reporting multiple shooters fled the scene. Police said it was reported one of the shooters was carrying a handgun and another had a rifle.
When officers arrived at the location, they said they were directed to a residence on the corner of the two streets. Police said that is where they found a woman who was shot in her upper right arm. According to police, she was given shelter by the home owner.
Logan Township Police said the victim was taken to UPMC Altoona and has since been released.
Police said the investigation is ongoing and emphasize it was not a random shooting.
