The suspect's car has been located in the parking lot of Giovanni's Pizza on York and Almshouse roads and reports say he is on foot in the Warwick/Warminster area.

At around 12:30 Sunday morning, reports came in of an officer shot in Doylestown, with a second officer who had glass blown into his eyes during the exchange of gunfire. Neither injuries are reported to be life-threatening.

Police officers were chasing a black Dodge pickup with Virginia license plates, wanted for an incident initially reported as being in Hi.

Authorities also suspect the shooter killed a woman in Virginia, possibly his wife. They report he is armed with an assault rifle and handgun.

Any updates for the area. This is a little alarming. News networks are not covering this story. Locals need to know.

I dont understand why we were not alerted to the fact that there was an armed maniac running around our back yards. My husband and i live on Stoney rd. None of the news channels were covering this story. I really do think this should have taken presidents over Irene!

You need to sign-up for Bucks County Alerts at the Ready PA website, www.readynotifypa.org, and select Bucks County. Once you have signed up, they will send you text messages (if you select your cell phone), e-mails (if you select e-mail), and others. I have been signed up for a few years and while sometimes it can get annoying because of all the rain and potential flooding, it was good to know about what was happening in my own neighborhood.
