What Was It Like Near Pottstown Shooting? Look Here
POTTSTOWN PA – If you ever wanted a close-up view of what it’s like to be with SWAT officers in the middle of a tense urban shooting situation, Pottstown professional photographer Darryl W. Moran has already supplied it.
Moran, of Subject Matters Photography on Sixth Street, on Monday (Feb. 13, 2012) told the world via Twitter, the social media platform, that he’d posted 40 photos to a Facebook album of last week’s shooting stand-off at the Logan Court Apartments. Attempted first-degree murder and other charges were lodged Monday by Pottstown police against the 56-year-old man involved in the incident.
Like others who witnessed last Thursday’s (Feb. 9) events unfold, Moran was kept at a distance from the action and relied on his cameras’ telephoto lenses to capture the action. Some of the images provide a gritty sense of the day’s confusion and anxiety.
