Arrest Made In Bucks Co. High School Shooting | #schoolshooting


WARMINSTER, PA — A Lansdowne man has been arrested and police are blaming a drug deal gone wrong in the parking lot shooting that happened at a Bucks County high school late last month.

Cameron George Scurry, 22, turned himself in to Warminster Township Police on Monday. He faces charges including felony aggravated assault and carrying a firearm without a license. Scurry was booked and released on $100,000 unsecured bail.

Police say Scurry was the man who, shortly before 5 p.m. on Sept. 23, chased a victim into a parking lot at William Tennent High School in Warminster, then fired at least two shots from a handgun into a group gathered there.

No one was injured in the shooting, which happened as sports teams and other student groups were at the school.

The school was locked down after the shooting as police searched the area with K9 units.

All students who were there were released to their parents and guardians once police secured the area, according to the school district.

According to a police affidavit in the case, the victim, a man from Ambler, is one of several men caught on security video hanging out around a fence covered with greenery that separates the high school parking lot from Lowell Road.

The victim is seen on video walking toward where two other men were sitting, then running away, according to the affidavit. One of those men, who police say is Scurry, is shown chasing him with his arm raised and holding a handgun, appearing to fire twice, police said.
