A Shenandoah man is locked up in Schuylkill County Prison after firing off a gun while police were doing a welfare check.

According to Shenandoah Police Chief George Carado, on Monday, April 19th, 2021 around 10:00pm, police responded to check on the welfare of Kennedy Collado-Abreu, 38, after family and friends became concerned with irrational behavior and statements made by Collado-Abreu. 

Shenandoah Police Officers Adam Sajone and Cody Applegate approached the door and knocked multiple times. Shortly after knocking, a gunshot was fired from inside the residence.

Collado-Abreu was taken into custody without further incident and no one sustained any injuries from the gunshot. 

An investigation determined that Collado-Abreu fired the gun after he heard police knocking on the door, believing that someone was coming for him. An adult female, and two children were present when Colaldo-Abreu fired the shot.

Kennedy Collado-Abreu was charged with felony Discharge of a firearm into an occupied structure, 3 misdemeanor counts of Recklessly endangering another person and 2 misdemeanor counts of Endangering the welfare of children. 

He was arraigned by Magisterial District Judge David J Rossi and committed to Schuylkill County prison, unable to post $100,000.00 cash bail.

Shenandoah Police were assisted by West Mahanoy Township and Mahanoy City Borough Police during the incident.
