Police: Man killed wife, sister, man before fatal gun battle in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania

Police said a domestic altercation between Brian Taylor and his wife Linda ended with him shooting and killing her.

UNITYVILLE, Pennsylvania– According to authorities, a domestic dispute in central Pennsylvania over the weekend resulted in a triple homicide and a shootout with state police that ended in the suspect’s death.

Officials in Lycoming County said police officers responding to a report of a female victim of a shooting in Jordan Township around 9:30 a.m. Saturday were told that a man was shooting at vehicles with a rifle.

State police said Sunday that soldiers found Brian Taylor “actively firing a rifle” on Route 239. He was killed in a shootout with soldiers who were not injured.

Police said a domestic altercation between Taylor and his wife Linda ended with him shooting and killing her. He then fled his home on Route 118 toward the intersection with Route 239 and shot a passing truck before reaching his sister’s home, police said.

He then shot and killed his sister, Andrea Meek, and drove north in an SUV on Route 239, where he encountered an acquaintance, Jerry Zehring, whom he also shot, police said.

Taylor had “shot at several houses and moved vehicles” along the two streets, hitting three vehicles and damaging some houses, police said. No injuries were reported by the victims in the passing vehicles. The soldiers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave as usual, police said.

The Pennsylvania State Troopers Association previously praised the soldiers’ “training and quick thinking” and said they prevented “more senseless loss of life.”
