(CBS NEWS) A man who police say fatally shot three people during a municipal meeting in the Pocono Mountains amid a dispute with the township over dilapidated property was arraigned Tuesday on homicide charges and other counts.
The gunman, identified as 59-year-old Rockne Newell, indiscriminately fired shots Monday night as he barged into the meeting, authorities said. He left long enough to get another weapon from his car and continued firing upon returning until he was tackled by at least one person and was shot with his own gun, police and witnesses said.
At the arraignment, a judge asked Newell if he owned any real estate and he responded: "They stole it from me. That's what started all this."
