Search warrants served at the home of a man who gunned down two of his neighbors in Harrisburg and then shot himself reveal that deputies found he had a small arsenal.
Detectives began drawing up a warrant to search the home of Anthony Hardy, 50, on Coachman Court late Friday afternoon, while deputies were still in a standoff with Hardy.
By then Hardy had shot and killed two of his neighbors -- Dan Kirchner and Gary Stocks -- and the warrant says that Hardy fired several shots from inside his home while deputies were outside.
They also reveal that deputies had made phone contact with Hardy but that he didn't say anything to them -- and that they could only hear his breathing.
Some time after that, deputies say Hardy shot and killed himself. When they were able to get into his home safely they searched and found a total of eight weapons -- two pistols, three revolvers and three rifles, along with ammunition.
Chief Deputy Paul Hunt says they are now trying to find out when and where Hardy got the handguns. Hunt says he only had a permit to buy one of the guns and that he was turned down when he wanted to renew a concealed-carry permit in 2010 because he had plead guilty to assaulting one of his neighbors in 2004.
Hunt says tracking the weapons is a critical part of the investigation that has yet to explain why Hardy snapped and turned on his neighbors.
"We're just trying to look at every angle because we don't know what his state of mind was, we don't know anything right now," Hunt said.
