Thompson and Pamplin are both currently in jail on unrelated charges.

Police were called to an apartment in Pitcairn around 1 a.m. on March 7, where they found Bailey suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police believe the shooting was possibly a “drug deal gone bad,” according to Allegheny County Police Lt. Andrew Schurman, and Bailey was being robbed when he was shot.

Thompson and Pamplin will be arrested and arraigned on several new charges, including homicide and robbery.
