Schuylkill County Man Facing Murder Charge Following Drunken Karaoke Night

A Schuylkill County man faces a criminal homicide charge following a drunken night of karaoke in Gordon recently.

According to WNEP.com, Michael Grady — the vice-commander of the American Legion Post in Girardville — allegedly shot a close friend, Steven Molina in the neck early Monday morning. The two were among friends starting Sunday night, at Molina’s house in Gordon.

On Sundays, according to reports, the friends would gather to have karaoke nights. On this particular night, Grady says he drank “about a dozen beers” before asking to see Molina’s shotgun.

As Grady handled the gun, it fired and struck Molina.
