Shaquisa Sims, 32, was one of the people shot. She was taken to the hospital where she later died. Jasmine Johnson, 29, was also shot outside of the restaurant.

Police say that 21-year-old Andrew Howard was determined to be responsible for the shooting. During the incident, he was shot in the upper arm and was taken to a hospital in West Virginia.

"Their accounts are that Howard brandished a firearm," Lt. Kolencik said.

It's unclear if he shot himself, but police say only one gun was recovered at the scene.

"We don't know how that happened, if it was accidental, accidentally shot himself, or there was another shooter," Lt. Kolencik added.

What started the argument is still unclear, but police say that Sims and Johnson were friends and that Johnson is known to be Howard's girlfriend. 

Howard is facing charges of criminal homicide, aggravated assault, and firearms charges, among others. 

Once he was released from the hospital, Howard waived extradition and was brought back to Pennsylvania.

He was arraigned and is being held in the Fayette County Prison.
