Arrest Warrant Issued For Wilkins Twp. Shooting Suspect

WILKINS TOWNSHIP (KDKA) – An arrest warrant has been issued after a shooting prompted a lockdown of an apartment complex in Wilkins Township.

According to police, the incident happened in the 700-block of Penn Center Boulevard. A fight broke out between 27-year-old Timothy Brown and his cousin, identified as Aaron Thornton-Blalock, just after 2 p.m. Monday.

During the altercation, Brown allegedly pulled out a gun and shot the man multiple times. The shooting prompted a three-hour standoff with police at the Laurel Village Apartments.

Initially, people in Building 700 and 800 were told to stay in place while police cleared the buildings.

People inside recalled hearing gunshots.

“Like, ‘pop, pop, pop’ and I jumped up and opened window blinds, looked out and seen somebody running,” said Rose, who lives in the building. “There was blood everywhere.”

The victim was taken to the hospital and was last listed in critical condition.

Meanwhile, police are still looking for Brown. He is described as 5-feet-7-inches tall and is known to frequent Pittsburgh’s Homewood neighborhood.

Police released two photos of him Tuesday, once of him wearing glasses and the other not.

Brown is facing charges of aggravated assault, attempted homicide, weapons violations and recklessly endangering another person.
