DAVIDSVILLE, Pa. — Authorities say a western Pennsylvania man rammed his ex-girlfriend’s car and then shot and killed her in front of her 11-year-old son before taking his own life.
The Cambria County coroner’s office said 37-year-old Amanda Boring of Johnstown was driving in Conemaugh Township after 10 p.m. Friday when her car was rear-ended by a vehicle driven by 38-year-old William Yarina of Franklin Boorough.
Authorities said the two got out of their vehicles and got into an argument before Yarina shot Boring and then himself. Coroner Jeff Lees pronounced both dead at the scene of single gunshot wounds to the chest. He ruled Boring’s death a homicide and Yarina’s death a suicide.
Among those who called 911 was Boring’s 11-year-old son, who was in her vehicle and witnessed the crime. He was unharmed.
