WTLR in the News
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 that "he struggled with bipolar disorder".
After the shooting, WTLR issued a statement and a recount of events on their website.
