Police have arrested a man in connection with a fatal shooting on Monday evening in Wilkinsburg.
Borough police officers were patrolling the area where the shooting occurred at around 6 p.m. when they spotted a man in the vicinity of an abandoned building shortly before receiving a 911 call for shots fired in the 1600 block of Laketon Road.
