Three Brownsville men who were wanted in connection with a Fayette County bar shooting surrendered today.
State police said Allen Dade, 31, Gregory Hackett Jr., 31, and Richard Groom, 30, 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 said in a news release.
Police had already arrested two other men: Paris Brown, 35, of Hiller, and Damion Ethridge, 33, of Brownsville, in connection with the shooting.
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.
