NANTICOKE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — New details have been released about a shooting in Nanticoke that left one man dead and another man facing homicide charges.

According to Pennsylvnia State Police, on February 25 around 3:34 p.m. police were called to Jifkin Street in Nanticoke for a pickup truck stopped in the middle of the road with a person suffering from a gunshot wound.

Investigators say first responders arrived and sent the victim, later identified as 37-year-old Brian Edwards, to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Hospital where he was pronounced dead when he arrived.

Back at the crime scene, police say six .40 caliber shell casings were found laying on the sidewalk near a house on Jifkin Street. The owner of the home was interviewed by police who stated she knew Edwards and that a friend of hers, James Miller, 32, was at her home before the shooting.

The homeowner told troopers Miller entered her home, left a camouflage backpack, went outside, and then gunshots were heard. Detectives say the homeowner noted Miller and Edwards did not like each and had a long-standing feud where she has heard Miller say he wanted to kill Edwards.

As stated in the affidavit, police interviewed Edwards’ sister who told them three weeks ago she talked with the victim who said to her “if anything happens to me, Jimmy did it,” referring to Miller. Edwards’ sister also stated the two used to be best friends but had issues with a girl they were both interested in.

Police said they obtained surveillance video on the day of the shooting where seven to eight shots were heard. A figure was seen approaching the car where Edwards was found and a dirtbike/motorcycle leaves the scene.

According to court documents, investigators were able to connect Miller to the scene of the crime by learning he owned/drove dirtbikes. The backpack left behind had a holster for a .40 caliber handgun that matched the casing found at the scene of the shooting. Police say the bag also contained a PA birth certificate with Miller’s name on it.

Miller was transported to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility where he has been charged with criminal homicide.
