PITTSBURGH (AP) — The third man sought in the death of an infant who was struck by a stray bullet that went into his family’s apartment during a shootout on a Pittsburgh street has turned himself in to authorities.
Devon Thompson, 37, of McKees Rocks, surrendered Tuesday to city police. He faces charges of criminal homicide, criminal attempted homicide, aggravated assault and a weapons count, and it wasn't known Wednesday if he's retained an attorney.
Authorities have said Thompson and two other men — Andre Crawford, 29, of McKeesport, and Marvin Hill Jr., 41, of Spring Hill — were at the Three Rivers Manor apartment complex when they opened fire on Aug. 24. Authorities have not said was sparked the shootout, but said numerous rounds were fired.
Zykier Young was sleeping in his family’s apartment when he was struck in the head by a bullet that traveled through two walls before it hit him, authorities said. The year-old boy was taken to a hospital but was pronounced dead there several hours later.
No other injuries were reported in the shootout. Authorities say it's not clear who fired the shot that struck the infant.
Crawford and Hill have been in police custody since early this month.
