Philly area-drug defendant shot
WEST CHESTER, Pa. — Two men were apprehended and a third was being sought in the shooting death of a man facing charges of selling cocaine, police said.
Christian M. Oliveras, 21, whose attorney said he had been scheduled to accept a plea agreement next week on four counts of selling cocaine, was found with multiple gunshot wounds early Monday in the row house he shared with his parents, officials said. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
West Chester Police arrested Trent Larelle Jackson, 18, of Coatesville, late Monday and he was held without bail in the Chester County Prison, Police Chief Scott Bohn said Tuesday.
He said Efrain Molina, 28, of West Chester, was apprehended in Atlantic City, N.J., where he was involved in a car accident about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, and was being held awaiting arraignment and extradition proceedings. Both were charged with murder, conspiracy and other counts, officials said. It was not immediately known if Jackson or Molina had attorneys.
Bohn said authorities, aided by information from members of the public, were continuing to search for a third person thought to have been involved in the shooting.
