4 injured, suspect in custody after shots fired into crowd outside Allentown home: DA

Scary scenes in Allentown Tuesday night after officials say a quadruple shooting erupted as people gathered outside a home in Allentown.

Four adults were struck when an armed suspect opened fire on the 1800 block of West Turner Street, according to the DA's Office.

The victims, three women and one man, were taken to a local hospital by personal vehicles before police arrived on scene. They are all expected to survive.

The suspect, identified as 22-year-old Axel Yadiel Suarez-Vidal, surrendered to authorities Wednesday morning. 


He is charged with Criminal Attempted Homicide, Aggravated Assault and Reckless Endangering.

Officials say no other suspects are being sought at this time.

Muhlenberg College, which is located less than a mile from the shooting location, issued a brief lockdown on campus Tuesday night. Officials say the shooting has no connection to the college.

Witnesses told FOX 29's Hank Flynn that they heard at least 8–9 gunshots.

Video from the scene show police with ballistic shield removing children from a property near the shooting.
