Fatal shooting suspect in court

Ebensburg, Cambria County Pa. - The man accused of gunning someone down at a local bar is headed for court today.


Police say Nijan Joiner shot and killed Eddie Wanamaker at the Clubhouse Bar in Johnstown last month.


That bar has since been shut down because of the dozens of reports of violence there over the years.


Joiner is facing several charges including criminal homicide.


His preliminary hearing is set to begin at 1:00 this afternoon.
