NANTICOKE-- Police say a scuffle between two people led to gunfire early Thursday morning in Luzerne County.

It happened just before 3 a.m. on East Spring Street in Nanticoke.

Police believe it all started when the victim tried to knock down the door of a home and that led to a fight, then the shot was fired.

Authorities said the victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The names of those involved have not yet been released.

    Things like this didn’t happen in Nanticoke not too long ago. Remember Destiny McNeil…the girl that attacked a Nanticoke resident in his own garage from behind with a brick, then stole a brand-new ambulance from a crew MAKING A CALL just down the street from the attack? (She led Police on a chase, eventually totaling it to the tune of $150,000.) Ahh, progress.
