SWAT Team Called to Scranton Home

SCRANTON — Police surrounded a home in Scranton after a shooting Sunday morning.

Officers told us a neighbor heard shouting in a home on Acker Avenue around 2 a.m., followed by several gunshots.

When police arrived on scene shortly after midnight, no one answered the door. So, officers surrounded the home and called in a SWAT team.

Everyone inside eventually came out peacefully.

Investigators say  Marquis Brownlee, 19, was shot in the leg.He told police it happened inside the home, but he’s not sure who shot him.

Brownlee was taken to the hospital, was treated and released.

There is no word if police have any suspects after the shooting in Scranton.
