Sean Hughes cause of death
The statement said that the three-person shooting in the village northeast of Philadelphia occurred in a gray Hyundai Elantra that the Marysville Police Department discovered to have been stolen from Bristol Township, Pennsylvania. Even after stopping the Hyundai with stop sticks, the driver would not stop, according to Marysville police who attempted to pull over the vehicle. Eventually, the driver—later identified as Hughes—came to a stop next to Bear Swamp Road.
Hughes and the other occupants of the car exited and fled, according to the police. One of the suspects, who was in the front passenger seat, was apprehended by the police without incident. They also think that a lady was inside the car but managed to escape before they could reach her. According to their accounts, officers discovered Hughes dead about thirty yards from the site from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

After providing first assistance, the police declared Hughes deceased at the spot. There were no intentions to charge the passenger in the front seat as of Thursday. Hughes was a person of interest in a triple shooting that happened on Halloween in Bensalem Township, involving a number of young people who were engaged in a physical conflict. Witnesses claimed that gunshots were fired from the grey Hyundai that was there at some time during the altercation.
Bensalem Township resident and ninth grader at Snyder Middle School Peter Romano, 14, was shot in the chest and passed away in the hospital. Two further victims, ages 17 and 19, were shot but did not die, and they should make a full recovery. As part of the ongoing investigation, the stolen car and other items of evidence are being retained.
Peter Romano’s obituary and funeral arrangements will be released by the family at a later date.
