Sandy Township officers were called to the Homewood Suites at approximately 9:00 pm for a report of a 31 year old man who shot himself following an argument with his 31 year old paramour. Upon arrival officers located the man in the couple’s room, deceased from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. During investigation of the scene, multiple drugs and paraphernalia as well as other personal items were seized. Investigation into the items seized is ongoing. Sandy Township Police were assisted on scene by DuBois City Police, PA State Police R&I, DuBois EMS and the Clearfield County Coroner.
Employees of the Hampton Inn called police when a male and female were arguing and brandishing firearms in the lobby. Upon officers arrival the male had fled the scene and the female had returned to her room. Employees were able to convince the woman to leave the firearm at the desk when the male left. Officers located 44 year old Stacy Marie Best of Grampian in her room alone. She told officers she felt threatened after she and the male got into an argument, so she brandished her gun and he in turn brandished his. She told officers she had discharged her firearm and the round went through the wall into the unoccupied room next door. Best was taken into custody and charges have been filed.
