The gunfire broke out early Sunday outside the Puerto Rican Beneficial Society in Bethlehem. Investigators said Friday that the shooting stemmed from a verbal argument that started inside the club.
Investigators say 32-year-old Allentown resident Rene Figueroa is charged with criminal homicide in the death of Yolanda Morales. Forty-year-old Javier Rivera-Alvarado, also of Allentown, was charged with attempted homicide; police say he also shot Morales, but not fatally.
Morales died a short time later at a nearby hospital. Five others suffered serious injuries.
Telephone listings for the suspects could not be located and it was not immediately clear if either had an attorney.
