18-year-old charged with firing on workers at Lincoln-Lemington home, wounding 1
Police on Monday arrested an 18-year-old on charges he allegedly shot at three construction workers sent to winterize a vacant home in Lincoln-Lemington.
Police haven’t explained why Marcus McBride of Pittsburgh was in the Verona Boulevard home Monday morning, but they have charged him with attempted homicide, firearms violations and three counts each of aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.
According to a criminal complaint, the workers were hired to secure the repossessed house.
Instead, they encountered McBride, who said, “Oh, hell no,” when they opened the door about 9:30 a.m. and began shooting, wounding one of the workers in the hand. He’s in stable condition at a hospital.
That prompted a SWAT response that included use of the team’s Long Range Accoustic Device and gas canisters, but police found no one inside.
Online court records don’t list an attorney for McBride, who surrendered late Monday and faces a preliminary hearing Feb. 18.
