PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A man who was brought in two weeks ago for questioning in the Wilkinsburg mass shooting was back in front of investigators Wednesday.
“No, I did not, man, come on, man,” Cheron Shelton said leaving the Allegheny County Police station.
Shelton, 29, said he had no part in the mass shooting that killed five people and an unborn child in Wilkinsburg in early March.
Allegheny County Police brought him back to headquarters on Wednesday to question him further about the shooting.
They say they can’t call Shelton a suspect in this case, but are still investigating whether or not he’s connected. He was also brought to headquarters to be questioned about gun charges for an incident that happened in February of 2013.
He and three other people, 27-year-old Robert Thomas, 27-year-old Justin Gomez and 30-year-old Ashley Smith, were arrested on various charges, including possession of narcotics with intent to deliver and receiving stolen property in the form of firearms.
Thomas, Gomez and Smith were brought to headquarters Tuesday night.
Police went to an apartment in Wilkinsburg to serve some warrants, including one for Shelton.
When they went inside the home and searched the residence, they found various guns in the front bedroom including an assault rifle, various handguns and a revolver. They also found ammunition.
In the middle living room, police say they found $8,402.00 in cash and a prescription. In the kitchen, police found heroin and drug paraphernalia.
At the end of March, Shelton was arrested for charges stemming from a March 12 search of a home in Homewood in which weapons and ammunition were seized.
He was questioned about the Wilkinsburg mass shooting at that time as well.
Allegheny County Police also questioned Thomas, Gomez and Smith about the Wilkinsburg mass shooting Tuesday night.
They are all behind bars at the Allegheny County Jail.
