Man charged with double homicide in Beaver County shooting
An Ambridge man is charged with two counts of criminal homicide after two people were killed in an early morning shooting in Beaver County.
Brandon Richardson, 31, said he shot Brandon Everett and Lamar Seymour in self defense, according to Tribune-Review News Partner WPXI.
The shooting was reported shortly after 2:30 a.m. in the parking lot of a Sunoco A Plus convenience store along Merchant Street, WPXI reported.
The TV station reported that a witness said the two people who were killed were part of a group of people who attacked the shooter at a gas pump.
Surveillance video shows five men attacking Richardson, WPXI reported, citing court documents.
Richardson is in the Beaver County Prison without bail. A preliminary hearing before District Judge Edward Howe is scheduled for Tuesday.
