Two men accused of being involved in the shooting of three people, including a 2-week-old infant, at the Carnegie Towers apartment complex in April have been convicted.
Byron Hall and James Edmonds, both 21 and from Hazelwood, were convicted last week following a non-jury trial before Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Kevin Sasinoski in connection with the shooting that took place in the parking lot of Carnegie Towers on April 14.
Mike Manko, the Allegheny County district attorney’s spokesman, said they were both convicted of one count of attempted homicide, two counts of aggravated assault, three counts of recklessly endangering another person. They also were convicted of conspiracy.
Hall will be sentenced Feb. 19, while Edmonds facing sentencing on Feb. 20. Manko said the district attorney’s office will be asking for “significant jail time” for both defendants.”
Three people, including the young girl, were found with gunshot wounds after traveling in a car from the apartment complex to the BP gas station in Carnegie. Hall and Edmonds were found in a car at the apartment complex. Investigators are still looking for a third man allegedly involved in the shooting, Rashad Watson, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
