‘Tragic Loss of Life’

Man Plows Car Into North Carolina Restaurant, Killing His Daughter

A North Carolina man intentionally drove a car into a restaurant Sunday, killing his daughter and one other person, authorities said. Chief Tom Ellis of the Bessemer City Police Department said the vehicle was “completely in” the restaurant and left multiple people injured. Police arrested the driver, identified as 62-year-old Roger Self, and said the incident appeared to be “domestic related.” Sheriff Alan Cloninger of Gaston County said Katelyn Self, a 26-year-old deputy at the jail and daughter of the driver, was killed. “This young lady started out as a detention officer, worked her way up to deputy,” Cloninger said. “Tragic, tragic loss of life. All I’d ask is for the people to keep the family in your prayers, and also this sheriff’s office, because we’re suffering a little bit right now.” Self was booked into Gaston County Jail on two counts of first-degree murder.
