Gaston County, N.C. — Two dead and several others are hurt after a car crashed into a Gaston County restaurant.
Authorities said a man, identified as Roger Self, walked into Surf and Turf Lodge in Bessemer City with his family, sat the family down, left the restaurant and then intentionally drove his car into the restaurant.
Gaston County Sheriff Alan Cloninger said Self’s daughter, Caitlyn Self, was killed as a result of the incident, which police confirmed was domestic-related. Authorities said Caitlyn Self was an off-duty sheriff’s deputy who had been with the Gaston County Sheriff’s Office for four years.
Authorities did not release the identity of the second deceased victim or say if the second victim was also related to Roger Self.
Authorities said several law enforcement officials were injured as a result of the crash.
Roger Self was in custody Sunday afternoon.
Authorities said there is no indication that drugs or alcohol played a role in the incident.
