Just northwest of Philadelphia Montgomery County, police are searching for a man who they say killed his ex-wife along with five other relatives, at three different locations.
Bradley William Stone, 35, pictured above, is considered armed and dangerous.
The gunman was described as a white man standing 5-feet-10-inches tall, about 200 pounds, with closely cropped hair and a red beard. He’s known to use a cane or walker to get around, the DA’s office said.
One of the victims was Stone’s ex-wife, Nicole Hill, and it is said that they recently had a bitter custody battle. Hill is said to have been in fear for her life as a result.
Stone served as a Marine reservist from 2002 until 2011 and was deployed to Iraq once.
The first shooting occurred at Hill’s house and it is suspected that Hill was shot and killed in front of her children. Stone was seen exiting Hill’s house with their children and when asked by a neighbor if everything was alright, Stone responded “She’s hurt pretty bad, we gotta leave”.
The kids were found a short distance from the house, safe.
The second shooting happened just a half hour later at another residence. One victim was described as being Hill’s grandmother.
A third shooting occurred at a location said to be owned by Hill’s sister. Multiple bodies were discovered at this location.
If you have information or happen to come across a person that you believe to be Stone, please dial 911 immediately to report.
