BEAVER FALLS (KDKA) — Police in Beaver County are looking for a suspect they describe as “armed and dangerous” following an overnight double shooting in Beaver Falls.
The shooting happened around 10 p.m. Wednesday in the area of 16th Street and Third Avenue.
Two people were taken to the Beaver Medical Center by personal vehicle for treatment, including a 20-year-old female who had a minor gunshot wound. A 19-year-old male was later transported to a Pittsburgh hospital for a more serious gunshot wound.
Initially, police were dispatched to 1526 Third Avenue, and they were out in full force surrounding a house there, but investigators are still trying to determine if the shots were fired inside the house or on the street.
Police are now looking for 26-year-old Deshung Malone from Beaver Falls in connection with the shooting. He is facing charges of criminal attempted homicide and aggravated assault.
Malone is described as being 5-feet-9-inches tall, weighs 135-145 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes.
Beaver Falls Police say Malone “should be considered armed and dangerous,” and if you see him you should not approach him. Instead, call 911.
