Police said after their initial investigation, they believe Self, of Dallas, drove the car through the Surf and Turf Lodge in Bessemer City intentionally. 

Wait staff told our partners at the Gaston Gazette that Self took his family into the restaurant and had them seated. He then went back out to his vehicle and drove at a high rate of speed into the area where they were sitting.

Officers said one of the victims was identified as Self’s daughter, Katelyn Self, 26, who worked with the Gaston County Sheriff’s Office.

Other family members were also injured, according to police.

"Tragic, tragic loss of life,” Gaston County Sheriff Alan Cloninger said. “I'm asking people just to keep the family in your prayers, and the Sheriff's Office, because we're suffering right now."

Caleb Martin, who is just 14 years old and buses tables at the restaurant, witnessed the car crash through the building.

"I walked over to my station and I heard a loud boom,” he said. “It went straight through. There's a doorway. There is a wall and he drove in another room."

Caleb was dazed by the carnage he saw.

He said that momentarily he didn't know what to do but then sprang into action.

"The one guy I could help in back, he was pretty hurt,” Martin said, “I helped paramedics move tables off this dude and I moved debris out of the way so they could get to him."

Officials said Roger Self is a private investigator who used to work for the Gastonia Police Department years ago.

Police said all of the victims, and Roger Self, are known to the employees.

"He was a regular and we haven't seen him in a while, so when he came back, it was kind of sad,” Martin said.

Veteran heartbroken after her therapy dog is mauled to death

Years after fighting for our country in Iraq, Cherice Jackson found herself in another fight – this time for her best friend, her therapy dog Ms. Pooh. 

Jackson said two pit bulls mauled Ms. Pooh to death and she couldn’t stop it.

“I spent probably 20, 30 minutes trying to wrestle her from him,” Jackson told Channel 2’s Justin Wilfon. “It’s probably the worst thing I’ve ever seen. I felt like I couldn’t do anything. I feel like I failed her."

She said shortly after taking her dog out for a walk early Friday morning in her Decatur neighborhood, the pit bulls attacked.

Jackson suffered cuts and bruises, but her dog was gone.

“When I was finally able to get ahold of her and get her in the house and see the damage they did to her, it hurt … because she was my baby,” Jackson said. 

DeKalb County Animal Control set a trap with the hope of catching the pit bulls that animal control believes are strays.

Jackson suffers from PTSD and her dog comforted her after she came home from war.

Blake Rashad, the founder of the Top Dog Canine Foundation, told Wilfon he was about to evaluate Ms. Pooh to see if the therapy dog could become Jackson’s service dog.

“That’s what these dogs do. They bring her anxiety down. They help with depression,” Rashad said.

For now, Jackson’s heartbroken that she couldn’t save the life of the dog that made her life so much better.

“She’s like … been everything to me,” Jackson said. 

The Top Dog organization is now raising money to pay for a new service dog for Jackson.

DeKalb Animal Control continues to look for the dogs responsible, but so far, no luck.

Jackson wants them put down when or if they are caught.
