Police, U.S. Marshals Arrest Suspect In Teen’s Fatal Shooting
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — An 18-year-old has been taken into custody in connection with last month’s shooting death of another teenager in Pittsburgh’s Troy Hill neighborhood.
There is a sense of comfort in Troy Hill after Pittsburgh Police detectives and the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested Theodore Smedley at a Wilkinsburg home on Chalfant Street early Tuesday.
He is facing homicide, conspiracy to commit homicide and carrying a firearm without a license charges in the shooting death of Rasheed Strader.
The shooting happened in the late night hours of March 24 along Goettman Street, when police say Smedley shot Strader multiple times in the neck and chest.
He was found lying in between two parked cars around 9:30 p.m. and pronounced dead at the scene.
An arrest warrant was issued for Smedley on April 2.
He was handed over to Pittsburgh homicide detectives following his arrest.
The US Marshals’ office says after Smedley’s arrest, Pittsburgh Police Homicide Detectives took the investigation over.
