A North Carolina man drove into a restaurant on purpose over the weekend, killing two family members, police say.
Roger Self sat his family down for a Sunday afternoon meal at a restaurant in Bessemer City and then went outside. He got in his jeep, police say, and rammed it right into the restaurant, killing his daughter and daughter-in-law, and injuring other family members in the chaos, according to The Gaston Gazette.
Self, a prominent 62-year-old businessman, was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder on Sunday in the deaths of his daughter, Katelyn Self, a deputy in the Gaston County Sheriff’s Office, and his daughter-in-law Amanda Self, a nurse.
Amanda Self’s husband, Josh Self, a police officer, and the couple’s 13-year-old daughter were also injured, as well as Roger Self’s wife. The family was all at church earlier in the day, the Gazette said.
