The Western Pa. Fugitive Taskforce made four arrests in recent days, taking into custody males all involved in gun violence.
On Dec. 21, the taskforce developed information that Ramon White Jr, 19, was at a house in McKees Rocks. White was wanted for attempted homicide, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and gun charges in connection to a shooting in Mt. Washington in October.
Also on Dec. 21, Pittsburgh Police detectives developed information that Renato Shealey, 30, was staying at a hotel in the South Side. Shealey was wanted for a shooting in the Hill District earlier in the day. He was also wanted on an outstanding Allegheny County Police arrest warrant for Indecent Assault. When plainclothes detectives went to the hotel, Shealey approached them in the lobby, asked for money and assaulted them, apparently unaware that they were police. Officers took him into custody and then recovered a gun from his room.
On Dec. 22, the taskforce arrested two males at a residence on Kelly Street in Wilkinsburg:
Bryan Noel, 19, was wanted by Allegheny County Police for a shooting that occurred Oct. 1 in Mt. Oliver. Maurice White, 19, was wanted by Pittsburgh Police for a fatal shooting in Northview Heights on Aug. 23. They were taken into custody without incident. Taskforce members also recovered guns at the residence.
Pittsburgh Police thank all of the law enforcement agencies involved in the taskforce, to include the U.S. Marshals, Allegheny County Sheriffs Department, Westmoreland County Sheriffs Department, Pennsylvania State Police and Pennsylvania Probation and Parole.
