'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Police said a Natrona Heights man was shot to death early on Saturday in Pittsburgh's Beltzhoover neighborhood.

Antoin Dudley, 35, was killed as he and his girlfriend were returning to her apartment in the 300 block of East Warrington Avenue, according to Pittsburgh police Lt. Kevin Kraus. The pair were returning from a convenience store about 3:40 a.m.

As they walked up the front steps toward the house, a man shot at them from the street, Kraus said.

Dudley and his girlfriend ran to the side of the house, where Dudley collapsed. When officers arrived, they found Dudley in the home's kitchen with multiple gunshots throughout the upper portion of his body. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Allegheny County medical examiner ruled his death a homicide.

Police believe the gunman fired at least 15 rounds from a handgun. Police said there were six people inside the house, ranging in age from 11 months to 22 years.

One bullet grazed the arm of a 15-year-old girl, but she did not seek medical treatment.

Kraus said police aren't releasing information about a suspect or a motive. Anyone with information is asked to call the city homicide squad at 412-323-7161.
