Man Questioned By Police Not Charged In Clairton Shooting

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Three days after a Clairton police officer was shot and critically wounded, only one man is charged in the case.

A man was picked up in Mt. Oliver and originally described as the second suspect in the shooting of Officer James Kuzak; however, after several hours of questioning at county police headquarters, he was taken away in handcuffs.

The man was arrested on a bench warrant unrelated to the shooting, according to investigators.

Charges have been filed against 21-year-old Myles Hutchinson.

The wounded officer remains critical at UPMC Mercy Hospital. A candlelight vigil in Clairton is planned for 7 p.m. Friday.

    What exactly did Dr. Martin Luther King die for? We were freed from slavery but slavery has not left us, we fought for the right to sit at the front of the bus but sit in the back, nate smith fought for unions now we fight for welfare and the right to wear a weeve, we are still trying to totally get rid of the kkk but murder is the flavor of everyday, preachers say we should love Jesus but they don’t get deep and tell us why (I guess they don’t want to ruffle any feathers).
    Here is a stupid question about the so call race riots, how can there be a race riot when everyone fighting and burning down their own business is the same color?
