Police said 30-year-old Christina George-Harvan, of Conway, shot 21-year-old Katelyn “Kaytee” Francis of Fairmont, W.Va., around 10 p.m. in the parking lot of a bar in New Brighton, about 30 miles north of Pittsburgh.
The wedding was held earlier in the day.
“We believe all three were arguing over who was going to be the designated driver,” New Brighton Police Chief Charles Vanfossan told TV station WTAE.
