Police release names of gunman, victims in Geeseytown shooting

Posted: Updated:

HOLLIDAYSBURG, Pa. (AP) - Authorities are trying to figure out why a man shot and killed three people in central Pennsylvania, including a woman decorating a church hall for a children's Christmas party, before being killed in a gun battle with state police that injured three troopers
 
Authorities in Blair County said Saturday that 44-year-old Jeffrey Lee Michael was a neighbor of the two men killed Friday in the tiny village of Geeseytown, about 70 miles west of Harrisburg.
 
Fifty-eight-year-old Kimberly Scott of Duncansville was killed in the Juniata Valley Gospel Church and 60-year-old Kenneth Lynn was killed in the driveway of his home.
 
Authorities said Michael then rammed a pickup driven by Lynn's son-in-law, 38-year-old William Rhodes Jr., and shot him before he himself was killed in a gun battle with state troopers.
