Three people died in a shooting in northeastern Pennsylvania stemming from an apparent argument over snow removal, authorities said Monday.
Officials in Luzerne County said gunfire occurred just before 9 a.m. Monday in Plains Township. Neighbors told WHTM-TV that they heard about a dozen shots.
When police officers responded to a report of shots fired in a residential neighborhood, they discovered 50-year-old James Goy and his 48-year-old wife, Lisa Goy, lying dead in the street in front of their home, according to a joint statement by Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis and Plains Township Police Chief Dale Binker.
Residents in the area directed police officers to a house across the street from the Goys’ home, but as they approached the front door, a gunshot rang out, the officials said. Inside the house, police found 47-year-old James Spaide deceased from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, officials said
The Goys had a 15-year-old son with autism who is now staying with his grandparents, Binker said.
