A deranged Pennsylvania man has admitted to plowing his car right into a crowd of individuals, killing one and wounding 17 others, before he drove home and murdered his mother with a hammer.
Adrian Oswaldo Sura Reyes, a 24-year-old from Nescopeck, reportedly experienced an argument along with his mother before hopping right into a vehicle and driving to neighboring Berwick, where in fact the mass casualty crash occurred, in accordance with a criminal complaint obtained by WYOU.
Cops said he drove by the Intoxicology Department bar in which a crowd had gathered for a fundraiser for the groups of 10 individuals who were tragically killed in a fire earlier this month. He turned around after he made a decision to drive in to the crowd.
Reyes told police he was just sick and tired of fighting along with his mother.
He barreled in to the crowd around 6: 15 p.m., killing 50-year-old Rebecca L. Reese and sending 17 others to a healthcare facility.
I didnt ram em, I simply ran them over, Reyes thought to police, based on the affidavit.
Following the crash, Reyes drove back. When he arrived, he saw his mother standing outside in the pub. Cops said he floored the gas and crashed into her with leading of his car.
He told police he got a hammer from his car and bashed his mother in the top 4 or 5 times with it. When police arrived on scene they found the girl dead and arrested Reyes.
It is a complete tragedy in a residential area where theres recently been tragedy, State Trooper Anthony Petroski told reporters.
We will do our job to the very best of our abilities to conduct an intensive investigation not merely for the families however the community members. Theyre already hurting.
As he had been resulted in court by Pennsylvania State Police around 3 a.m. Sunday morning, the accused killer said sorry, WYOU reported.
