Officials: Dispute may have sparked shooting

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say the shooting that critically injured two young girls at an apartment complex in northeastern Pennsylvania may have stemmed from a domestic dispute.

Police in Luzerne County have not reported any arrests in connection with the gunfire that erupted at about 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the Sherman Hills Apartments in Wilkes-Barre.

District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis said a 2-year-old girl was in critical condition and a 5-year-old was listed in critical but stable condition. She told The (Wilkes-Barre) Times Leader that the girls appeared to have been living or staying in the apartment where the shooting occurred.

City officials said in a statement Sunday evening that initial evidence suggests that the shooting resulted from a domestic dispute.
