Monday night changed that — when police said a resident with a grudge rained hell at a town council meeting.
By the time he was subdued, Rockne Newell had fatally shot three people and wounded several others, police said.
Newell had a years-long feud over property rights with the township’s board of supervisors, the elected body that sets policies and laws for the community of 5,400.
Last year, a court ordered him to leave the property in Monroe County and later put it up for sale, the Pocono Record newspaper reported.
“If I lose this property, I have nowhere else to go,” he told the paper in June.
“What they’re doing to me, what they’ve been doing to me for so long, it’s wrong.”
