Published August 10. 2019 03:48PM

Authorities are investigating a fatal shooting at the Pennsylvania State Game Commission rifle range just north of Nesquehoning. 

The incident occurred just after 11 a.m. Saturday when it was reported a man was down, suffering a gunshot wound to the chest. 

A Carbon County deputy coroner is on scene. 

The entrance to the scene has been closed.

T2C, this has absolutely nothing to do with Politics. You need to get a mental health evaluation as soon as possible. You have Trump Derangement Syndrome that inhibits normal reasoning. You are a fool on stage after the play is over. Exit stage right...toward the mental hospital.
I'm very curious to hear what happened. I used to shoot there a lot but the influx from the CITY of Hazleton was getting unbearable on the weekends. Not that it was busy that's great people want to shoot and there is a place to shoot. The problems I saw with it were trash everywhere and carloads of younger adults pretty much doing what all the notices tell you not to do (rapid fire, rifles on the pistol range, pistols on the rifle range, shooting sporting clays, nobody communicating) I hear the same is happening at the Tobyhanna range. There were reports of people stealing stuff off your bench or out of your vehicle when you would walk down the range to check/pull targets.

Honestly, I'm surprised the range is still open. There aren't many places to shoot 300yards. Yea you should try that on the weekend. That's a long walk down to the 300yd range knowing half the people shooting had NO IDEA WHAT YOU JUST SAID and all you said was "Please give me a few minutes to get back."
