Family: Dispute spurred fatal shooting at Pa. car wash; 5 dead

5 dead after shooting at Melcroft, Fayette County

Four people are dead after an overnight shooting at a Pennsylvania carwash, authorities said.

One other person was being treated at a hospital for gunshot wounds, a state police trooper told reporters at the scene. The spokesman did not provide further details.

He said two bodies were found in a pickup and two others on the vehicle wash parking lot.

Police said it was possible that the shooter was among those found dead.

The victims have been identified as William Porterfield, 27; Chelsie Cline, 25; Courtney Snyder, 23; and Seth Cline, 21.

Two victims died inside a vehicle and two were found outside in the auto wash's parking lot. There is one other person being treated for gunshot wounds. "Fortunately, she only sustained minor injuries from breaking glass".

The shooter, 28, was reportedly armed with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, a 9mm handgun, and a 308 rifle, and had several magazines for those weapons. "However, that determination has not been made at this point".

A motive for the shooting remains under investigation.

"Bukovac characterized Melcroft, an unincorporated community in western Pennsylvania's Fayette County, as "fairly quiet", and said nothing of this magnitude has happened at the carwash in the roughly two decades they've owned it".
