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.

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.
