PSP say domestic dispute in Quincy escalated to shots fired Wednesday afternoon

04 January 2024- Pennsylvania State Police say they have arrested a man on gun and reckless endangerment charges following a domestic dispute that escalated in Quincy Township yesterday. Baseer Levi Pierce is facing five felony charges of discharging a firearm into an occupied structure, five misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment, and one citation count of harassment. Pierce is behind bars on $25,000 bail in Franklin County.

PSP Troopers say they were on regular patrol around 1:15pm on January 3rd when they received a dispatch to a location on Grindstone Hill Road, Quincy Township for an active domestic. Once at the scene, police interviewed one of the victims who allegedly told them her husband, Baseer Pierce, and her had a verbal fight. Police say that the victim told them Pierce became physical, pushing the victim down for her to remove herself from the situation.

Troopers say that at this point the victim locked herself in the bathroom when she heard a loud noise and found Pierce pacing back and forth with a gun in his waistband. It was after this episode Pierce left the home.

After interviewing the victim, Troopers searched the home and say they found a single 9mm shell casing in the dining room and a bullet fragment in the kitchen of the home. Due to four children being in the home at the time of the incident as well as the primary victim, Troopers filed multiple charges against Pierce for the single shot being fired.

Baseer Pierce is behind bars on $25,000 bail. His preliminary hearing is set for January 9th.
