Four people charged with attempted homicide in July shooting in Fairywood

Pittsburgh police on Tuesday charged four people in connection with a July 30 shooting in the West End neighborhood of Fairywood.

Police obtained arrest warrants for Robert Minor II, 20; Rahman Terry, 19; Lorn Smith, 21; and Micah Barnes, 17, charging them with attempted homicide, aggravated assault and other counts.

They fired at least 10 shots at a vehicle on West Prospect Avenue, police allege in a criminal complaint.

The victim told police she heard several rounds hitting the front of her vehicle as she ducked under her dashboard.

She “clearly observed” three gunmen because they were standing directly under a street light, and got a “quick glance” at the fourth shooter, according to the complaint.

She told police she grew up with several of the suspects. She talked to Smith after the shooting, and he told her they accidentally shot at her because they thought she was someone else, the complaint stated.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
