They say Mahanoy City PD first arrived at the scene outside the RMusic 21 Lounge at 128 E. Centre St. for a reported disturbance. That’s where they found Romero and Ramirez with gunshot wounds.

It’s believe the fight began when Romero and Ramirez were refused entry to the barroom.

Outside that establishment, things escalated. State Police say an unidentified Hispanic man pulled out a gun and shot Romero multiple times in the middle of E. Centre St.

Ramirez was kneeling behind his vehicle parked outside the RMusic 21 Lounge. He was able to get his own out of his vehicle but was also shot multiple times.

The shooter fled the scene, police say.

    In the last 10-20 years, this hoarde of invaders locusts have replaced families and filled homes with lawless filth and ignorance of law and order. But, by in large, many are law abiding, hard workers, with strong faith and value familial bonds… unfortunately, the Ramirez-Romero cliques overshadow the assimilation of decent folks by making our communities filthy cesspools. The dark, murky world of “illegal” immigration festers and grows, while promoting lawless behavior, the very second they cross the border “illegally”, by NOT following the legal process set forth many many years ago. Immigration lawyers and criminal defense lawyers, working in concert with these criminals, and perpetuating human trafficking, are enablers, and a scourge to our once great nation, state and County, while de-balling our localities, police departments, and law-abiding citizens.
