        Newtown Borough and the surrounding Newtown Township is where I grew up. You can't ask for a better place or better people. This shooter just changed an entire community in one cowardly, drunken, selfish act. Peace be with brother Gregg and his family.

          I grew up in Philadelphia but moved to Bucks Co when I was 19.

          God Bless the Officers involved and their families, my prayers are with you.

          Timeline of terror

          Bucks County Courier Times

          5:09 P.M.: Off-duty Pennsylvania State Trooper Joseph Carcaci calls police to report a gold Beretta driving "erratically" on State Street in Newtown. While following the car, the trooper tells police he sees the driver "physically assault" a female passenger. Carcaci tells police he saw the woman "attempt to get out of the car several times and, each time, the driver would grab her by the hair and pull her back in and punch her about the head and face."
          5:13 P.M.: Newtown police Officer Brian S. Gregg and Carcaci stop the car and take the driver, Robert A. Flor, into custody. They charge him with assault and DUI. Newtown Township police Officer Shane Vandermark, who arrives to assist, runs a portable breathalyzer test. Flor's blood-alcohol level is 0.17 - more than twice the legal limit of 0.08.
          Gregg takes Flor to the Newtown Borough Police Department. He and Officer James Warunek, who arrives to assist, take Flor to St. Mary Medical Center in Middletown for alcohol and urine tests in relation to the DUI charge.
          6:22 P.M.: Flor grabs Warunek's five-shot revolver and starts shooting, witnesses say. He shoots Warunek in the chest and then shoots Gregg and emergency room technician Joseph Epp, Epp says. As Flor walks toward Gregg, Epp grabs Flor's leg. Flor shakes him off, walks over to the prone Gregg, curses at him and shoots him twice in the head.

          At some point, Flor returns to Warunek, points the gun at his head and pulls the trigger, Warunek says. The gun did not fire.
          Flor, who, at some point shot, himself in the hand, drops the gun and flees, witnesses say. Hospital employee Brian Murphy tells police he follows Flor and sees him head to the parking garage.
          Within minutes of the shooting, dozens of police officers from around Bucks converge on the hospital, lock it down and begin searching for Flor.
          7:37 P.M.: Flor is found hiding in a car on the top level of the St. Mary parking garage and is taken into custody. He's treated in the ER for a gunshot wound to the hand. Witnesses say he shot himself during the attack.
          The probable cause affidavit, released Friday, is the basis for this timeline. Information came from the police, the surviving victims and witnesses.

              Funeral

              Like some others that have posted, I grew up in Richboro, PA, the town which lies next to Newtown. I'm now a police officer in Louisiana.
              Does anyone know of the date which has been set for the funeral. I've read through the articles in the BCCT but can't find it mentioned.
