ROSS TWP., Pa. - Officials in Monroe County are taking steps to clean-up a piece of property that was at the center of a fight that ended in a deadly mass shooting.
Ross Township says a contractor has been hired to clean up Rockne Newell's former property on Flyte Road.
Newell opened fire on a township meeting last August, police say, because of a long-running dispute over the condition of his property.
Three people were killed in that attack.
It's not yet known when clean-up will begin but the township will pay for it, according to Ross Township officials.
The National Park Service will be closing River Road in Middle Smithfield Township between park headquarters and Hialeah Picnic Area to protect migrating amphibians.Read More »
