Pennsylvania State Police said today they have obtained arrest warrants for three Brownsville men in connection with a weekend shooting at a Fayette County bar.

Allen Dade, 31; Gregory Hackett Jr., 21; and Regis Grooms, 29, face charges of riot, simple assault and conspiracy in connection with the Saturday shooting at Jilly's Restaurant and Tavern in Luzerne, troopers from the Belle Vernon barracks wrote in a press release.

Police have already arrested two other men: Paris Brown, 35, of Hiller, and Damion Ethridge, 33, of Brownsville.

Troopers said Mr. Brown and Mr. Ethridge pulled out handguns after they were thrown out of the bar for fighting.

From outside, Mr. Ethridge fired through the front door, and Mr. Brown then went back into the bar and began firing inside, police said.

Two people inside the bar, Cassandra Ross, 30, of Brownsville, and Garrett Grooms, 26, of Cardale, were shot and taken to Uniontown Hospital.

Ms. Ross was taken to a Pittsburgh hospital later.

Troopers arrested Mr. Brown and Mr. Ethridge after a foot chase.

State police asked anyone with information about Mr. Dade, Mr. Hackett or Mr. Grooms to call the Belle Vernon barracks at 724-929-6262.
