UPDATE:

Cambria County coroner Jeff Lees confirmed that the two individuals involved in Friday night’s shooting were victims of a murder-suicide.

Lees said the victims, identified as 37-year-old Amanda Boring and 38-year-old William Yarina, got into an altercation, near the intersection of Truman Boulevard and Hornet Avenue, after Yarina rear-ended Boring’s car.

Investigators say at some point during the altercation, Yarina pulled out a gun and shot Boring, before turning the gun on himself.

Lees adds that both victims suffered a single gunshot wound to the chest and were found lying on the roadway by first responders.

Authorities also noted that Boring’s 11-year-old son was in the vehicle at the time of the incident.

Lees says that the boy was unharmed and was the person who made the 911 call.

The Cambria County coroner’s office, Conemaugh Township police and state police are continuing to investigate the incident.
