Lansford Shooting Victims in Critical Condition

LANSFORD — Police said two people are in critical condition after a shooting late Saturday night in Carbon County.

Authorities said shots were fired inside a home in the 400 block of West Patterson Street in Lansford.

Police said that Melissa Price and Levi Zagata were involved in a domestic dispute that lead to the shooting.

Detectives said they have not determined who pulled the trigger.

Price is the children’s mother. Zagata is the children’s uncle.

Authorities said four children, between the ages of 4 and 12 were in the home at the time. They were not hurt in the shooting and are now staying with relatives.

Police said there has been trouble at the home before. In 2012, the children’s father, David Zagata was arrested for allegedly kidnapping Levi, his brother, at knifepoint.

On Sunday neighbors sat on the stoop trying to make sense of what happened.

“It’s horrible, just horrible, I feel so bad for the children and of course the victims,” Sherry Shellhammer said.
