CHESTNUTHILL TWP., Pa. - State police have arrested a second and third suspect in connection to a triple shooting in Chestnuthill Township.

Matthew Joseph Burke, 21, of East Stroudsburg, was charged with homicide, attempted homicide and multiple counts of robbery Saturday.

Eric Gulley, 41, of Allentown, was also charged Saturday. He is facing charges for illegal possession of a firearm and evidence tampering.

Charges stem from a Dec. 4 incident in Chestnuthill Township.

Two people died and one person was critically injured in a triple shooting at a home on Silver Maple Road.

Dylan Beinert, 22, died at the scene, and Khalil Durante, 23, died Saturday, three days after the shooting.

Durante's father, Walter Howard Durante, was critically injured. His condition is currently unknown.

Officials said there were four suspects involved in the shooting.

Investigators said Beinert had a drug deal in place with Deani Powell, who was charged Friday in the shooting, but it went awry.

State police said Powell and at least two others, with street names "Flex" and "Pop," set up Beinert to be robbed.

Police said when Beinert showed Powell the drugs, she sent in the two others and another man with guns.

A struggle ensued between the alleged gunmen, Beinert, and others at the home. Beinert was shot and died inside the home, officials said.

The suspects then made Durante, his father, and two other victims go outside and lie down on the ground, according to court paperwork.

Durante and his father, Walter, were then shot, and the gunmen jumped in vehicles and fled the area, officials said.

Durante and his father were rushed to the hospital. Durante, 23, died Saturday of his injuries, officials said.

State police arrested two of the suspects, Powell and Burke, on criminal homicide charges among others.

It's unclear what Burke's alleged role was.

Gulley was also arrested Saturday and charged with illegally possessing a gun and tampering with evidence.

Beinert's sister, Diane, said she is remembering the good in Dylan on Facebook. She said she and her brother helped many lost pets find a home through their Facebook page "Monroe County PA. Lost Pets."

Diane said she would like folks to donate to either a rescue of their choice or hound hunters in his name and memory.

A GoFundMe page made Sunday in Khalil Durante's honor says he was a devoted son, an unwavering brother and a loyal friend.

D.J. Durante, the older brother of Khalil, said, "This pain this numbness is so hard I don't even know what else to say damnit! Khalil I will love you eternally and I'll see you again someday kid!"

The GoFundMe page asking for any help folks can give Khalil's loved ones through this difficult time.
