Police Make Arrest in 2013 “Baby Marcus” Case

Date: June 27, 2020
Pittsburgh Bureau of Police detectives and SWAT officers arrested a Wilkinsburg man this morning on criminal homicide and other charges in connection to a 2013 triple shooting that killed a 1-year-old baby.

Gregory Parker, 22, is charged with criminal homicide, criminal conspiracy, four counts of aggravated assault and gun charges. He was brought to Police Headquarters Saturday before transport to the Allegheny County Jail.

On May 21, 2013, Zone 5 officers responded to a report of a shooting in a picnic area on the 2300 block of East Hills Drive. Two adults and a baby, Marcus White, Jr. were shot. The two adults survived. Baby Marcus, who was 15 months old, died.

During the initial investigation, police interviewed numerous witnesses. The investigation revealed that a group of 25 to 30 people were enjoying a picnic when a group of individuals exited a vehicle across the street and started shooting at them.

Baby Marcus’s aunt picked him up and used her body to shield him from the gunfire. Investigators believe a bullet struck her in the back and traveled through her before fatally striking the baby in the chest.

No arrests were made that day. But Pittsburgh Police never gave up and never stopped seeking justice for Baby Marcus.

Investigating detectives know that this arrest will not erase the pain of Baby Marcus’s family. But members of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police hope that Parker’s arrest will at least bring a level of closure to family and community members.

This investigation, now in its eight year, is ongoing and active. Anyone with additional information on the shooting is asked to call Violent Crime Unit detectives at (412) 323-7161.

A total of 12 people suffered gunshot wounds shortly before 12:30 a.m. Sunday in the 2900 block of Hennepin Avenue South, the Minneapolis Police Department said.
The 11 survivors hose suffered non-life threatening injuries, police said.
At first, the gunfire sounded like fireworks, witness Erik Thompson said. But it kept going.
“We started hearing whizzing by our ears, and it was the bullets coming towards us,” he said.
“The hardest part was just … not knowing what to do, so we kind of hit the deck. The two cops who were there on our side of the street had the protection of their cop car, and they (drew) their weapons. It was pretty surreal.”
