Man kills ex-wife, 5 others in Montgomery County

35-year-old Bradley William Stone is being chased by the police after he allegedly shot dead his ex-wife Nicole Stone, her mother, her grandmother, her sister, her sister's husband and 14-year old daughter.

A shooting spree in Montgomery County, Philadelphia has left six people dead and one injured, officials have said.

35-year-old Bradley William Stone is being chased by the police after he allegedly shot dead his ex-wife Nicole Stone, her mother, her grandmother, her sister, her sister's husband and 14-year old daughter.

Stone, a former marine, is said to have first killed his former sister-in-law, Patricia Flick early on Monday, December 15, at her home in Souderton. He also killed her husband, Aaron Flick, and the couple's daughter, Nina, 14 while their 17-year-old son, Anthony was seriously wounded.

The gunman then proceeded to nearby Lansdale where he killed his ex-wife’s mother, Joanne Hill, and grandmother, Patricia Hill.

Nicole was killed later at her home in Harleysville after which Stone was seen fleeing with their two children. The BBC however reports that the children have been found but Stone is still on the loose and the police have warned that he may be armed and dangerous.

“As I stand here right now, we do not know where he is,”Risa Vetri Ferman, the District Attorney for Montgomery County stated.

It is not yet clear what triggered the attack but reports say that the shootings might be related to a custody dispute.

Family friends and neighbors have said that Stone had suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and was discharged from the military because of it.
