District Attorney Fran Chardo says police have arrested Brian McCullough who was at the home at the time of the shooting. McCullough is charged with criminal homicide.

Experts say this is a tragic reminder that it is not easy to get out of unhealthy relationships. “It may be an issue of their current economic state. Also through generational trauma, they themselves may have grown up as a victim of domestic violence and many abusers have grown up seeing domestic violence as children,” CEO of Empowered Visionaries, Yvette Bailey said.

Bailey also says step one in getting out of an abusive relationship involves calling a domestic abuse hotline or a close friend you can trust.

This is the second deadly shooting in Harrisburg this week. A man in his 20s was killed Sunday night on Emerald Street in uptown Harrisburg. No arrests have been made yet in this case, however.
