Mayor orders reporter to leave shooting scene, lets others stay

John Paul reports Beaver County Times Reporter J.D. Prose was told by Aliquippa Mayor Dwan Walker to leave a shooting scene over the weekend, while other bystanders were allowed to stay.

Former independent candidate for Commissioner Jack Manning asked Prose about the incident, tweeting “WTH is that all about?” Prose replied “Apparently, Dwan is unhappy w/our coverage of Aliquippa. He was ranting about us ignoring positive events.”

Mayor Dwan Walker also responded to Manning on Twitter, writing he was upset the Beaver County Times failed to provide coverage of him throwing the first pitch at a Pirates game.
