    Police say a gunman is dead after a barricade situation in eastern Pennsylvania.

    Investigators say the ordeal began around 7:30 p.m. at the Dick's Sporting Goods store. A middle-aged man walked into the store and asked to see a shotgun as well as ammunition, according to investigators. As the clerk was about to hand the man the gun, the man allegedly pulled out a handgun, pointed it at the clerk and told him to unlock the shotgun. Police say the man then took the shotgun as well as ammo and then barricaded himself inside the store's bathroom.

    The entire store as well as neighboring businesses were evacuated.
