ALIQUIPPA (KDKA) – A 16-year-old boy is facing charges for fatally shooting a man in Aliquippa on Friday night.
The shooting happened just after 9 p.m. in the 500-block of Wykes Street. The victim, identified as 30-year-old Tremayne Foster, was found dead in front of a house in the 700-block of Griffith Street.
Moments before police were called to the shooting scene, Foster had called 911 to say he was trying to pick up his 9-month-old son, but he wasn’t being allowed into the home.
Family members say Foster was engaged in a domestic dispute with the mother of the infant.
That’s when police say the woman’s 16-year-old son, identified as Cordell Wimbs Broadus, pulled up in a car. The two got into an argument, and the teen pulled out a handgun and fired four shots.
“The guy just came out and shot him point blank range,” O.C. Foster, the victim’s father, said.
Foster and his sister, who was with him, then fled down an alley towards his uncle’s home, and she heard additional gunshots while they were fleeing. They continued to flee until they reached the 700-block of Griffith Street, where Foster collapsed.
“After I seen the lights, I came outside and found it was my nephew that got shot,” Eugene Hunt Jr. said. “He made it the white house, one house short of my house, he tried to make it to me, he wanted somebody to help him.”
Foster’s sister also said she felt a burn on her side while they were running, and her cell phone appeared to have been struck by a bullet.
The 16-year-old suspect is facing charges of criminal homicide, attempted criminal homicide, and aggravated assault.
O.C. Foster wonders if the suspect’s mother told him to shoot Tremayne Foster, because the two had been in a major fight last week.
“She came up there raising sand, breaking windows, she told me she was going to kill my son,” he said.
