PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A young man has turned himself in for allegedly shooting at a group of construction workers in Lincoln-Lemington.
According to police, 18-year-old Marcus McBride turned himself in at the Shuman Detention Center.
Neighbors along Verona Boulevard said they thought McBride had moved out of a home when his parents did.
So did the three men sent to the house Monday morning.
The workers are employed by a company that secures repossessed homes for the bank. When the trio walked up to the home and knocked, there was no answer initially.
Then, McBride emerged.
“They were met by a male on the porch with a weapon who started firing at them. They dove for cover behind their work vehicle,” Pittsburgh Police Spokeswoman Sonya Toler said.
A bullet struck one of those workers in the hand.
During the ordeal, the SWAT team was called in. Neighbors didn’t know what was happening.
“I heard this big bang – like shook the whole house and woke up,” one man said.
“I told my son to get away from the windows. I didn’t know if they were going to come into our backyard or what,” one woman said.
Police found McBride’s identification inside the house and the workers identified him from the photo.
McBride surrendered to authorities overnight.
McBride will be transferred to the Allegheny County Jail to face charges of aggravated assault and carrying a firearm without a license.
