In Fallsington, Pennsylvania, a homeless man, 26-year-old Andre Gordon Jr., is facing severe charges after allegedly killing three people. He fled to New Jersey, where he now faces additional charges, including murder and firearms-related offenses.

Andre Gordon Jr. is accused of a tragic incident where he shot and killed his 52-year-old stepmother, Karen Gordon, and his 13-year-old sister, Kera Gordon, in their home in Falls Township. At the time, three other individuals were in the house but managed to hide from Gordon.

Following this, Gordon went to another house and fatally shot 25-year-old Taylor Daniel, the mother of his two children. Four other people in the house survived the attack. Daniel’s mother was injured by being hit with the gun but is expected to recover, according to Bucks County District Attorney Jennifer Schorn.

The Falls Township Police Department responded to a shooting report on Viewpoint Lane in Levittown, Pennsylvania, around 8:50 a.m. Upon arrival, they discovered the tragic scene where Gordon had killed his stepmother and sister. Shortly after, he moved to another location on Edgewood Lane, where he committed another murder before fleeing.

Gordon is also accused of carjacking a victim at gunpoint in a Dollar General parking lot in Morrisville, Pennsylvania, shortly after the shootings.

The stolen vehicle, a 2016 dark gray Honda CRV with a Pennsylvania license plate, was found unoccupied in Trenton, New Jersey. New Jersey Attorney General Matthew J. Platkin stated that Gordon carjacked another vehicle in Trenton before committing the murders in Falls Township. He was later apprehended in Trenton.

The FBI, ATF, NJSP, Mercer County Rapid Response Team, and Mercer County Homicide Task Force assisted in Gordon’s capture.

In Pennsylvania, Gordon faces multiple charges, including three counts of first- and second-degree murder, among other offenses. In New Jersey, he faces charges of carjacking, weapon possession for unlawful purposes, and more.

The events have left communities in Bucks and Mercer counties in shock and fear, highlighting the devastating impact of illegal firearms. Authorities in both states are working closely to ensure Gordon is held accountable for his alleged actions.

The Bucks County St. Patrick’s Day Parade was canceled, and several local businesses closed temporarily due to the incidents. Falls Township is located approximately 28 miles northeast of Philadelphia.
