POTTSTOWN, Pa. - One man has died after a police-involved shooting in Montgomery County.
Officers were dispatched around 11:30 p.m. Thursday to an apartment building on High Street in Pottstown after someone reported a social media post made by the man. Friends said the post consisted of images that implied the man would take his own life.
When police arrived, neighbors said the officers found the man outside with a weapon. It's not clear if the man threatened officers with the weapon, but neighbors said they soon heard a gunshot.
Police fired at the man, who died after being flown to Reading Hospital, according to the Montgomery County district attorney's office.
"We got along really great, but you never know what's inside a person. You can put a good smile on your face, but on the inside, you might be getting eaten up," said Omar Andrews. "I'm lost. He was one of my best friends in this building."
More information is expected to be released as the investigation continues.
