Police, Fire, And Helicopters Over Bear This Morning

Just before 7:00 Monday morning rescue crews and police responded to the Amtrak shop, located at 258 E Scotland Drive in Bear for unconfirmed reports of an active shooter.

As part of the emergency services protocols medical helicopters were also dispatched to the area. The incident was quickly determined to be unfounded, however, before the all-clear was given Philadelphia media helicopters also responded to the area.

Amtrak Senior Public Relations Manager Beth Toll tells First State Update that Amtrak Police worked with local authorities this morning to investigate what turned out to be an unfounded workplace concern at our Bear, Delaware shop. There was never any threat to employees or impacts to train service.
