WTLR in the News[edit]

On Friday, July 25, 2008, Ferguson Township police were dispatched to the Cato Avenue studios of WTLR as a man with a gun was on the way to the station.[1]

Brian Neiman attempts, unsuccessfully, to run over police in the parking lot of WTLR.

When 50-year-old Brian Neiman of Pottersdale arrived at the radio station, police ordered him to stop. Neiman refused and reportedly became violent. Police say Neiman branished a gun and drove at them in his Ford Bronco. Witnesses say "dozens of shots" were fired as Neiman exchanged gunfire with police.

After Neiman hit a second police cruiser, his SUV struck the side of a neighboring building and stopped. Centre County Coroner Scott Sayers pronounced Neiman dead on the scene.

Police aren't sure why Neiman targeted the radio station.

Neiman's ex-wife told The Centre Daily Times[2] that "he struggled with bipolar disorder".

After the shooting, WTLR issued a statement and a recount of events on their website.[3]
