Bensalem Police put crime scene tape around the Bensalem Beer Distributor located on the corner of Street and Hulmeville Roads. Multiple sources tell Delaware Valley News that this was to investigate a shooting. Police did not confirm that. We are waiting on confirmation and motive from police sources .
Unconfirmed reports say that this was a result of an altercation inside the store. The store was closed while the investigation was being done. The incident started about 10:45 AM March 30, 2022.
Social media was full of speculation as to what happened, with unfounded reports of an accident to a homicide. Neither of those rumors are true.. This story will be updated later this evening, when we get confirmation on what exactly happened. That update will include any corrections and additional details released by police.
