As a result of a joint investigation between the Steelton Borough Police Department and the Swatara Township Police Department, it was determined that the damage to the vehicle was caused by the accidental discharge of a firearm. Investigators learned that the accidental discharge occurred within a vehicle while it was parked near the Steelton-Highspire Elementary School. Additionally, the investigation led to an arrest and it has further been determined that this is an isolated incident and no additional steps need to be taken to ensure student and staff safety.
