Police eye phone records for clues in Pa. shooting


Associated Press

Police on Monday were focusing on phone records to try to piece together how a group of friends wound up at a Pennsylvania self-serve car wash, where a gunman lying in wait in the early morning hours killed four of them and injured one who managed to hide.

The suspected shooter, 28-year-old Timothy Smith, suffered a gunshot wound to the head in the Sunday shooting at Ed’s Car Wash in Melcroft, a rural town about 55 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. He’s on life support and isn’t expected to survive what authorities believe may be a self-inflicted injury.

Smith was a jealous ex-boyfriend of 25-year-old victim Chelsie Cline, according to family members of some of the victims.

Also killed were William Porterfield, 27; Courtney Snyder, 23; and Seth Cline, 21.
