Pennsylvania law enforcement officials named Andre Gordon, 26, as a suspect in connection with the fatal shootings that occurred in Falls Township on Saturday.

Falls Township Police say officers were called just before 9 a.m. ET to investigate a reported shooting on Viewpoint Lane in Levittown.

Authorities say Gordon, who was driving a stolen vehicle, shot and killed two people who lived at the residence. After the shooting, Gordon went to Edgewood Lane, where he shot and killed another individual, according to officials.

Authorities say Gordon knew all of the shooting victims.

Carjacking: After the shooting, police say Gordon carjacked a driver at gunpoint in the parking lot of a Dollar General on Bristol Pike in Morrisville. Police say the driver was not injured.

Police said the vehicle is described as a 2016 dark gray Honda CRV with Pennsylvania tag KFR 1534. Police added that a “namaste” sticker with white letters is on the right side of the rear bumper.

According to authorities, they believe Gordon is homeless and has ties to the Trenton, New Jersey area.

Falls Township and Middletown Township police have confirmed that Gordon is the suspect.

Police say Gordon was last seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt. Authorities added that Gordon may have an assault rifle, which they say he used in the shootings. It is believed Gordon may have additional weapons, police said.

Police say Gordon is considered extremely dangerous and anyone who sees him should contact authorities.
