I am writing today to inform you of an incident that happened Friday evening, unrelated to the Morrisville high school football game.
At approximately 9:30 pm, there was a shooting involving two vehicles on West Palmer Avenue, in front of the High School. There are very limited details about the incident. We are working with local authorities to determine the timeline, and identify those involved. There was one person who was injured during the incident, and it is my understanding that they have been treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital.
As a response to this incident, our District will have additional counselors at the school on Monday if students feel the need to talk with an adult about what has happened. Should you need assistance with this, please call us at the school, 215-736-2681 and we will assist you with making that connection.
Please keep in mind that this is an ongoing investigation. If you have any information about this incident, please contact the Morrisville Police Department at 215-295-8111.
