on West 4th Street — near Hayes Street — around 8:30 a.m., Delaware County dispatchers said. The family-owned company is a linen-rental and laundry services company that has been in business since 1988, according to its website. It mainly serves restaurants, country clubs, hotels and other business in Pennsylvania and some neighboring states.

Stollsteimer said that at least five people were shot and two had ***** after showing up for work. The ********* took place inside and outside the business and a handgun was used, investigators said.

“This is a sad situation,” Chester Police Commissioner Steven Gretsky said.



At least two workers were ******* and three others were hurt in a workplace ********* at a family-owned linen business in Chester, Pennsylvania, Wednesday, Delaware County authorities said.

Chester officers rushed one of the ********* victims to the hospital.

Stollsteimer asked for people to pray for the three injured people at the hospital.

An employee who was inside the business at the time of the ********* told NBC10’s Rosemary Connors the gunfire came as a surprise. Many people work early hours at the business.

Stollsteimer said that though the suspected shooter — an “******” worker — had issues with colleagues in the past, but there were no signs pointing to the ********* taking place.

“This is just a horrible tragedy that this whole community now is feeling,” Stollsteimer said.

Police in nearby town arrested suspected shooter

The suspected shooter — who works at the shop — was taken into police custody, the DA said, while noting the threat no longer existed.

Police from nearby Trainer, Pennsylvania, stopped the shooter’s car after a description of the suspect’s vehicle was released, Gretsky said.

Expect a large police presence to continue in the area as police in other departments said there is a county-wide response to the scene.

Officers with guns drawn could be seen opening doors to the business in the minutes after the *********.
