Police say a bullet traveled through the the window and walls where Zykier Young was sleeping. He was struck in the head.

Through their investigation, police say multiple buildings were damaged by bullets and several shell casings were found.

Video surveillance at the time of the shooting shows all three men. More specifically, police say the footage shows Crawford shooting his gun in a parking lot directly across the building where Young was sleeping.


“No sense of life having value or worth, it’s a sad, sad case. They just wanted to take each other’s lives,” said Victor Joseph, Commander and In-Charge of Major Crimes.

Police say the three men engaged in a “gun battle.”

“Any life taken is one too many. To take a one-year-old child from their family to not give them the future they deserve is unacceptable,” said Pittsburgh Police Chief, Scott Schubert.

Detectives are working both on the ground and behind the scenes around the clock to uncover more evidence and bring the suspects to justice. If you have information, call police.

Meanwhile the family is asking for prayers. KDKA’s Royce Jones spoke with a close relative who says the pain is insurmountable. The family is asking for prayers.
