Two teenagers will stand trial in Allegheny County court in the fatal shooting of a man in McKees Rocks in June.

Police suspect Christopher West, 18, of McKees Rocks, and Lavar Whitely, 15, of Pittsburgh, along with Dimitri Humphrey, also 15, in the June 15 slaying of Scott King, 19, of Penn Hills.

Police found King slumped over the wheel of a vehicle along White Alley about 2 a.m. with a gunshot wound to the torso. He died in Allegheny General Hospital.

West and Whitely, who like Humphrey is charged as an adult, are accused of homicide, robbery, conspiracy and gun violations.

Humphrey was arraigned in Pittsburgh on Oct. 24 after being extradited from Fort Worth, Texas.

He is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing in Pittsburgh Municipal Court Tuesday for the same charges.
