Police Release Photo of Man Wanted in Mahanoy City Lounge Shooting
State Police have released a photo (above) of the Shenandoah man suspected of a deadly shooting outside a Mahanoy City lounge bar earlier this week.
Santonio Pierre Malone, who also goes by the name Sosa, is wanted by police for shooting one man to death and seriously injuring another man who was shot several times outside the Rmusic 21 Lounge on E. Centre St., Mahanoy City.
Malone allegedly shot and killed 33-year-old Juan Romero, of Hazleton, and shot 29-year-old Alorfi Bladimir Ramirez, of Hazle Twp., injuring him several times as he kneeled next to his vehicle parked outside that business.
Following the shooting, which happened just before 3 a.m. Sunday, Malone fled the scene. He’s got a Last Known Address of 219 W. Mount Vernon St., Shenandoah.
The shooting stemmed from a fight at the Rmusic 21 Lounge after the shooting victims were denied entrance to the business.
Malone is facing a first- and third-degree murder charge, as well as other charges, when he’s apprehended.
