1 Person Dies From Injuries Sustained In House Fire In Peters Township – CBS Pittsburgh

MCMURRAY (KDKA) — Multiple fire companies respond for hours Monday night in Peters Township.

The fire broke out in a home at the end of a secluded road where an elderly couple lived.

When firefighters arrived the wife was out of the home but her husband was not able to make it out.

Firefighters had to go in to rescue him. The first time they tried to reach him, the smoke was heavy and they had to wait for a pumper truck to arrive.

“And they had said that there was entrapment inside the house,” said Chief Michael McLaughlin, of the Peters Township Fire Department.

A neighbor called 911 shortly before 5:30 p.m. after seeing smoke coming from the home at the end of the street on Clara Lane.

Neighbors told fire crews that an elderly couple lived at the end of the cul-de-sac. The wife had made it out, but her husband was still inside.

“We stretched the line into the house and we were able to stretch the line and continue our search, they found a victim at that time, inside of the house,” Chief McLaughlin said.

Man Runs From Cops, Throws Weed Into The Woods – CBS Pittsburgh

PENN HILLS (KDKA) — A 27-year-old man was arrested yesterday after fleeing police and attempting to throw away a bag of marijuana.

Penn Hills Police originally tried to stop Davaughn Jones for not using his turn signal while turning into the Penn Hills Shopping Center from Rodi Road.

The report from an officer states that he was in a marked police car and uniform during the incident and that the Jones was looking at him through the rear view mirror. Another patrol car also pursued Jones after he sped away from the first officer on Universal Road.

Jones then got out of his car on Collins Drive and ran from the Penn Hill officers, which was when he threw a “large bag” of marijuana in a wooded creek bed.

The officers were able to catch up with Jones and arrested him. They found then that Jones had a small bag of cocaine in his possession.

Jones had a warrant for a probation violation for robbery.

Penn Hills man found shot to death inside ransacked home

A Penn Hills man was found shot to death inside his home Wednesday evening after a report of a home invasion, police said.

The victim, identified by the medical examiner as 35-year-old Aaron Evans, was found dead when police responded to the 7200 block of Lawton Street a little after 6:15 p.m.

“We’re not sure exactly what happened inside the home, but we know he was forced back inside the home. At some point, he was shot,” county police Inspector Andrew Schurman said.

The house had been ransacked, and police said robbery appears to be a motive for the shooting.

“That’s something we’re trying to determine more definitively — what the motive was, and why he was selected,” Schurman said. “At this point, we have no reason to think he was randomly selected. There was something in his life that caused these men to show up and ransack his home.”

No suspects have been identified. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call county police at 1-833-ALL-TIPS (1-833-255-8477). Anonymous calls will be accepted.

Community Activist/Advocate Jessica Benham challenging Harry Readshaw for State Rep. Seat – Pittsburgh Current

Citing a frustration with her elected representation, Jessica Benham, a community organizer and cofounder of the Pittsburgh Center for Autistic Advocacy has announced her candidacy to take on 25-year incumbent Harry Readshaw next spring.

“I’m running for State Legislature because I continue to hear, every day, in neighborhoods throughout the district, that our community is ready for a State Representative who is firmly committed to Democratic and progressive values. If elected, I will be that representative,” Benham said. “As we campaign throughout the district, I’m excited to hear from community members and better understand their concerns and ideas for how to build a brighter future. It’s time that we focused on real solutions to the disparities between our neighborhoods and many others in the greater Pittsburgh Area.
