  • Multiple fatalities reported in western Pennsylvania car wash shooting

The shooting happened about 3 a.m. ET in the village of Melcroft, 42 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

Later Saturday, WPXI News reported the shooting had stemmed from a domestic dispute, according to interviews with family members of the victims.

Armed with a semi-automatic rifle, a.308-caliber rifle and a handgun and wearing a body armor carrier without the ballistic panels inserted, police said Smith killed 27-year-old William Porterfield, 25-year-old Chelsie Cline, 23-year-old Courtney Snyder and 21-year-old Seth Cline.

Pennsylvania State Police said that the shooter identified as Timothy Smith, 28, had been put on life support and not expected to survive after suffering a gunshot wound to his head during the attack.

Five people were killed and one was wounded after a gunman opened fire at a western Pennsylvania vehicle wash early on Sunday, state police said. However, victim Chelsie Cline's half-sister told the news station that Cline previously dated Smith and that he was obsessed with her. Bukovac mentioned that the police were already on the scene by the time he arrived.

Kolarik said Smith "came off as the most king-hearted person" but that his interests were "guns and guns and guns and shooting and beer and rolling cigarettes". Another died at a hospital.

One woman took cover in the back seat of the pickup truck and avoided being shot, police said. His or her condition and identity is not yet known.

Porterfield said that she was told by family members of other victims that her husband and Cline had spent the past two days together after Cline ended a relationship with Smith.

"That's insane. This happens in Pittsburgh, not here", Dick Kalp, who lives behind a nearby convenience store and called police, said.

"There is no continued threat to the community", a police spokesman said.

An injured person was taken to a hospital.

Porterfield and Chelsie Cline were killed inside their vehicle while near the side of the auto wash, officials said.

WPXI-TV reports the shooting occurred around 2:45 a.m. Sunday in Melcroft. Further information about that person was not released.
