Police respond to shooting in Plymouth Meeting

At approximately 12:30 p.m. today police responded to a shooting near the intersection of Plymouth Road and Rittenhouse Square in Plymouth Meeting. We are told the shooting is believed to be self-inflicted. A helicopter transported the victim to the hospital. UPDATE – We are now told an ambulance was used due to the weather.

After we learned this shooting was believed to be self-inflicted, we weren’t going to cover this. However, the Ring Doorbell app sent out an alert to people in the area telling them a shooting took place nearby and to avoid the area. So we want people to know there isn’t a shooter in their neighborhood.

That is all we know.
