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.

"Swat team rolled in," said Mike Elwell, a customer who was inside the store. "We've been here for awhile now but it's crazy. We watched them put together their full suits. They've got guns and everything. They're locked and loaded."
Shortly before midnight, police announced that the gunman shot and killed himself. They have not yet revealed the man's identity or the weapon he used to shoot himself.
