One man is dead and another is in custody after a daylight shooting in the Long John Silver's parking lot in South Union Township Sunday.
Justin D. Rittaco, 21, of Fairchance allegedly shot Robert Lukehart, 39, of Fairchance multiple times. Lukehart died of his injuries on the scene, according to state police.
Investigators did not reveal what led to the shooting at 548 Morgantown Street at about 4:25 p.m.
Fayette County District Attorney Rich Bower said at the scene Sunday evening one person had been taken in for questioning, referring to him as a "possible actor."
The restaurant was open at the time of the shooting, but Bower said he did not know how many people were inside Long John Silver's or in the parking lot. He said both the victim and suspect are Fayette County residents.
A state police forensics unit was also on the scene investigating, along with the Fayette County Coroner's Office.
Anyone with information is asked to call state police Uniontown at 724-439-7111.
