Two more shooting suspects in custody

NEW CASTLE — All three men charged in a November shooting on Adams Street have now been arrested.

New Castle police took two of them into custody this week. One already had been apprehended and is free on bail.

Albert Scott Tedrow Jr., 24, of West Pittsburg was arrested Monday night when New Castle police found him hiding out in a hotel on Route 422.

Daniel McCue, 19, of Highland Ave., charged as the alleged gunman with criminal attempt at homicide, robbery and multiple other counts, turned himself in to police at their station Tuesday night in the company of his attorney, David Acker.

Police chief Bobby Salem said some of McCue’s belongings were found in the hotel room where Tedrow was hiding.

Officers were led to the hotel from an unrelated traffic stop on East Washington Street around 7 p.m. Monday, where they allegedly found drugs and money on the passenger, Roy Gene Zook, 33, of 3062 McClelland Ave.

Zook was wanted on a state parole violation and a felony firearms warrant by Shenango Township police.

City police arrested Zook and found suspected heroin and marijuana and an unopened Suboxone, a narcotic film, in his pocket. He also had a prescription bottle of about 32 oxycodone tablets and a room key to the Caravan II Albergo hotel on Route 422. Officers additionally found $1,103 in cash in Zook’s pocket.

According to Salem, police then obtained a search warrant for Zook’s hotel room, and they arrived to find Tedrow hiding there.

Tedrow is charged with criminal conspiracy to commit robbery in the Nov. 6 Adams Street shooting, when a  man suffered bullet wounds to the neck and chest. Tedrow was wanted on a warrant when police found him at the hotel. He was arraigned by District Judge David B. Rishel and jailed in lieu of $10,000 bond. His preliminary hearing is Jan. 30 .

McCue had been shot multiple times Friday night in an unrelated incident and was flown to Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh. He also was wanted on a warrant for the Adams Street shooting, but he left the hospital before New Castle officers could get there to arrest him.

Upon surrendering Tuesday, he was arraigned by Rishel and lodged in the Lawrence County jail in lieu of $200,000 bond. His preliminary hearing is Jan. 29.

The third man accused in the Adams Street incident, Marcus Stanton, 18, of 709 Countyline St., also was charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and was arrested more than a week ago. He has posted bail. His preliminary hearing is Feb. 26.

All three hearings will be in Central Court.

Beginning tonight, the Pittsburgh Penguins will take on the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round of the NHL playoffs. So, who ya got? And in how many games?

Penguins, in five games or fewer. Too much firepower for the Blue Jackets, especially if Evgeni Malkin is ready to go.
Penguins, in six or seven games. It’s a pretty even matchup on defense, but Pittsburgh will grind it out.
Blue Jackets, in five games or fewer. Sergei Bobrovsky in goal for the Blue Jackets spells trouble for the Pens.
Blue Jackets, in six or seven games. Bobrovsky gives Columbus the edge, but it won’t be easy.
