Katelyn Self, a deputy with the Gaston County Sheriff's Office, was killed at the Surf and Turf Lodge in Bessemer City, officials announced at a news conference Sunday afternoon. The second woman who died was identified by Fox 46 as Amanda Self.
Investigators said that 62-year-old Roger Self, Katelyn Self's father, and reportedly Amanda Self's father-in-law, drove right into the restaurant -- apparently on purpose.
The Gaston Gazette reported that restaurant staff claimed Roger Self went with his family to the restaurant and had them seated. The father then allegedly went outside and purposely drove his Jeep into the building.

I am speechless at this occurrence. It is sick what this man did.
What a bizarre plan.
Upset at possible lesbian relationship?
They are calling this a domestic incident.
They are saying the other female killed was the guys daughter in law, but they dont mention the guys son.
She was married to his daughter?
Maybe. Regardless what a ghoul. Purposely seated them at a table where he could run then over.
Strange way to murder people. He wanted to be caught.
AAA is probably behind it. We need “common sense” SUV laws.
NO. He killed his daughter in law who was a nurse and married to his son. Also his daughter.
From Gaston Gazette:
“District Attorney Locke Bell, who said he has known Self for more than 30 years, said the prominent Dallas businessman will face two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of his daughter, Katelyn Self, who was a deputy with the Gaston County Sheriffs Office, and his daughter-in-law, Amanda Self, a nurse at CaroMont Regional Medical Center.
Amanda Self was the wife of Gaston County Police Officer Josh Self, who also was seriously injured in the incident, along with Roger Selfs wife, Diane, and the 13-year-old daughter of Josh and Amanda Self. Several other family members were present, but were not injured. Family friends have said Josh Self and Diane Self, along with Roger Selfs granddaughter, are all expected to recover from their physical injuries.”
I don’t know.
It sounds like he tried to take out his whole family.
The Gaston Gazette reported that Roger Self had been battling severe depression in recent years.
Psych meds again. Bet on it.
My guess exactly.
Very possible. Dude had severe mental and emotional issues, likely was on something. But damn to run over your whole family?
Evil evil evil
This article is clearer. Amanda was married to his son. Katelyn had a boyfriend who was also injured
No married to his son
This article is clearer
And you would be wrong
