Inquirer: DUI Suspect Has Criminal History in Willistown

Sean O'Neill Jr., who fatally shot his friend in 2006, allegedly drove his car into a West Goshen home while intoxicated Thursday morning.

The man who allegedly crashed his Cadillac into a West Goshen home early Thanksgiving morning, Sean Owen O'Neill Jr., has a dark history in Willistown Township, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer:

O'Neill gained notoriety when he accidentally shot and killed Scott Sheridan, a Cardinal O'Hara High School classmate, during an unchaperoned drinking party at the O'Neills' Chester County home on Sept. 1, 2006. O'Neill was adjudicated as a juvenile and completed two residential treatment programs before being released in 2009.

The shooting death prompted a search of the family's palatial Willistown Township home that led to a federal firearms conviction for Sean Owen O'Neill Sr., 51, an undocumented immigrant and former Delaware County pub owner who was recently deported to Ireland after serving an 18-month jail sentence.

O'Neill now lives in Glen Mills. Read the full story at philly.com.
