Woman surrenders in harassment case related to Carnegie shooting
A woman surrendered this afternoon after police sought her in the harassment of a security guard who aided in the investigation of a shooting that injured a baby and two others in Carnegie.
Tashae Griffin, 18, of Carnegie, turned herself in at 1 p.m. at district court, Carnegie police Chief Jeffrey Harbin said. Judge Dennis Joyce arraigned her and sent her to Allegheny County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.
Police charged Griffin on Monday with retaliation against a witness or victim. Police said she pushed a baby stroller up to a security guard in Carnegie Towers and said: “You just sit in your booth and do your job, and don’t worry about what happened outside. You said the shooter came out of my dad’s car, and you got him arrested. You’re going to get yours,” according to an arrest affidavit.
The security guard helped investigators searching for a gunman who fired into a car on Saturday, hitting 2-week-old Trinity Colbert, her father William Bosley, 19, and Tyler Dorsey, 24.
Police charged James Edmonds Jr., 20, of Hazelwood, with conspiracy in connection with the shooting. Edmonds and Griffin have a child together, police said. Police also arrested Byron Hall, 21, of Hazelwood, and issued a warrant for suspected gunman Rashad Watson, 19.
