PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Pittsburgh police detectives have made an arrest in the case of a woman shot while walking home from her job.
Police say Denise Golden was walking home from her job at McDonalds when two men walked past her, called her a name, and then shot her in July.
The Pittsburgh Police Department reached out to KDKA’s Marty Griffin for help with the shooting investigation.
“Get Marty” helped raise a $5,000 reward for help in the shooting, and it paid off.
Today police made arrested 19-year-old Raymon Brown was arrested in connection with the crime.
KDKA Investigator Marty Griffin was there when Brown was taken into custody, “Do you have anything to say about the shooting of an innocent woman, walking home from work, why would you shoot her?”
Police say Brown thrives on terrorizing people, and that he shoots people for the thrills.
“This career criminal will be held accountable for shooting an innocent woman in the chest on her way home from work,” Pittsburgh Police Commander Larry Scirotto said.
Police released a video hoping someone might come forward, but no one ever did.
That’s when police approached Marty about helping raise money for a reward, and it worked.
“I am so glad that he’s caught,” Golden said tonight. “I didn’t know there was so many kind hearted people.”
Police say Brown’s arrest sends a message.
“For people to get the courage to come forward, puts a stop to that behavior.”
There’s still another suspect out there and police say he’s in the Knoxville section of the city.
They’ve had various reports as to where he’s at.
