WEST CHESTER, Pa. -- A suspected cocaine dealer expected to accept a plea bargain next week was killed inside his parents' home Monday, according to police and the victim's lawyer.
Officers responding to a report of a shooting early Monday morning found Christian Oliveras, 21, on the third floor of the house he shared with his parents with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at Chester County Hospital.
Oliveras' lawyer said his client had been scheduled to accept a plea bargain next week to four counts of selling cocaine and receive a five- to 10-year prison sentence.
No arrests were immediately made, but District Attorney Joseph Carroll said he believes two people connected to the victim's drug activity entered the victim's home.
