‘Gun Battle' Outside Lehigh Valley Gas Station Leaves 2 Dead, Suspect Hurt

Injured man, Kareem Sanders, faces homicide charges in shooting deaths of Cassieam Hicks & Danny Daniels Cancel

A triple shooting, described by police as a "gun battle," outside a Lehigh Valley gas station left two men dead and a third charges in the killings after being shot himself.

Gunfire rang out around 1:15 a.m. Wednesday near the gas pumps at 1227 Airport Road, next to the Airport Plaza shopping complex, Allentown Police said.

Cassieam Hicks, 28, and Danny Daniels Cancel, 36, of Bethlehem were killed.

About 75 minutes later, a 24-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to his body was dropped off at the hospital by a car, police said.

Authorities said the injured man, later identified as Kareem Sanders, was later charged with criminal homicide. He has been denied bail, according to court records.

The gas station and attached convenience store had nothing to do with the shooting, investigators said.

Court documents indicate that Sanders will be represented by the county public defender's office, but that office said Monday he was not being represented at this point.
