Pittsburgh police describe shooting of suspects

Published: Tue, July 22, 2014 @ 1:56 p.m.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh police say a 19-year-old man shot two others who forced their way into his apartment, killing one of them.

Police haven’t identified the resident who shot the suspects about 2:20 a.m. today.

That’s when police say the suspects fired a shot through the apartment door and entered, accosting the 19-year-old man and a 17-year-old female who also lived there.

Police say the suspects forced the male resident into the bedroom, where he picked up a shotgun and fired three times, killing one of the suspects and wounding the other.

Police didn’t immediately identify the dead man, but say the wounded suspect is 27-year-old Christopher Thomas, of Pittsburgh. He was in critical condition at UPMC Mercy hospital.

Police haven’t said whether charges would be filed in the alleged break-in or subsequent shooting.

Good job young man. Protecting that young girl and eliminating a POS. Let's hope the other joins his friend or remembers what breaking into houses gets people.
