DA: Child, adult slain in eastern Pa.

Authorities say a child and an adult have been slain in an area northwest of Philadelphia.

First Assistant District Attorney Kevin R. Steele told The Mercury of Pottstown early Sunday that the killings occurred in Douglass Township in Montgomery County.

The paper did not carry any other comments from Steele but said police were sent to 50 Renninger Road shortly before midnight over reports of a shooting and several neighbors were told to stay in their homes while police investigated.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's website reported that several police departments converged on the area.

The Montgomery County communications center declined to provide any information on the incident.
