UPDATE 2:44 p.m.
The Montgomery Township Police Department did confirm that a woman was shot.
The suspected shooter was a man later found dead at 2203 Harvard Drive, the victim of an apparent suicide.
Police said that a Central Montgomery SWAT Team went inside the house and found the man dead. The shooter was the lone occupant of the home. He was the suspect wanted by police in the shooting, police said.
No identification was provided on the victim, who was flown via PennStar to the Hospital of the Pennsylvania University (HUP). Her injuries are still unclear, but she was bleeding from the upper torso area.
Police are withholding identities until notification of next of kin. According to Montgomery County land records, the property is owned by Mengting Liang and Zhilan Yu of West Kennedy Road in Montgomery Township.
Police cordoned off the cul-de-sac as a crime scene shortly after 1 p.m.
Gwyn-Nor Elementary was on a “lockout,” according to police, during the incident. No one could come in or out and shades were drawn at the local school. They continued their school day without interruptions, according to police.
Neighbors had reported hearing two shots fired coming from the direction of the home.
UPDATE 1:19 p.m.
A live video of the brief press conference is now available on the North Penn TAP Facebook page.
Lt. William Peoples, of the Montgomery Township Police Department (MTPD) spoke briefly to the press, saying the incident began with a call in at 9:52 a.m. with a call of shots fired.
MTPD responded to the 2200 block of Harvard Court to find an Asian woman "bleeding from the upper area of the torso."
“Officers evacuated the injured female to an awaiting ambulance, while a security perimeter was set up,” said Peoples. That same female was sent to University of Pennsylvania Hospital via helicopter.
In the meantime, MTPD has evacuated the area to keep others safe.
“The immediate area surrounding the 2200 block of Harvard Court has been evacuated by the Montgomery County SWAT team, who is on location at this time,” said Peoples. “For the safety of law enforcement personnel on the scene, no further information will be released, as well as no more information about the suspect and victim.”
The status of the shooter was simply called “under investigation.”
Lower Gwynedd, Upper Gwynedd, and the Montgomery County SWAT team were listed as assisting at the scene. A clear picture of all participating municipalities was not clear at the time of the press conference.
All further details were named as “under investigation.”

Police held a brief press conference to release a statement that the entire case is "still under investigation." No details were provided, including the number of persons shot, their injuries or who was involved in the incident. A second statement is to be given in a few minutes.

UPDATE: 12:40 p.m.
John Matthews, a neighbor near the shooting scene, told North Penn TAP he was on his way to physical therapy when he heard two gun shots and went back into his home.
Matthews reports he saw a small, Asian woman lying outside, who seemed disoriented and confused. He saw blood in the shoulder area of her shirt.
“I heard two shots,” said Matthews. “I didn’t think they were shots. I thought it was construction or something.”
The neighbor, who lives in the corner unit next to the shootings, said that he felt it was "too close for me."
“I was getting ready to leave,” said Matthews. “My neighbor called 911. She heard the shots, and saw the woman. I looked out the window and saw the woman, and that’s when the cops came."
When asked if he knew what had happened, Matthews said he could only report what he saw personally.
"I knew there was somebody hurt, it was serious," he said. "This doesn’t happen here."
Matthews said he later was glad he'd decided not to go to his appointment.
"I was going to walk to physical therapy, it is right around the corner," he said. "And I decided not to. Had I, I probably would have been passing the house when the shots were fired.
Matthews said he was distrurbed by the images, and was very happy to see first responders so quickly.
“I saw the woman outside,” he said. “[I thought] cops! I hope they get here, cause otherwise I was going to have to go out there.”
Matthews said the woman that seemed to be bleeding was assisted within minutes.
"She was a small Asian woman," he said. "I saw her, she sat down real quick, and laid back and that is when the cops got here. The cops were there awfully fast, which was relief for me."
Following the shots, witnesses report they saw a young Asian male, who sprinted up to the crime scene. He was not apprehended by, but was stopped by police. He was accompanied by an older Asian woman that was crying.
A press conference is being set up at the Assi Market plaza. NP TAP will have more information posted as soon as it is made available.
