ISAAC YOUNG

'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.

Allegheny County police have issued an arrest warrant for a Clairton man in connection with a shooting in the city.

Isaac Young, 26, is wanted for a June 25 shooting that happened around 1 p.m. on Miles Avenue, which resulted in one man being transported to an area trauma center.

Young is described by police as a black male approximately 6 feet 1 inch tall and 180 pounds.

Allegheny County Homicide Lt. Andrew Schurman said a police investigation revealed Young as a suspect. He is charged with attempted homicide, aggravated assault, weapons violations and recklessly endangering another person.

Young has ties to Pittsburgh's Hill District but recently was seen in Clairton. He may have shaved his head to alter his appearance.

Anyone seeing Young should call 911 immediately. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call county police at 412-473-1300.

Clairton hosted a March Against Murder along Miller Avenue three days prior to the shooting. More than 100 attended to promote peace and unity and an end to bloodshed.

“To try and take someone's life is unjustified and senseless,” Mayor Rich Lattanzi said after hearing about the shooting.

“By percentages, these people represent a small group, but on one hand they make such a negative impact on our town. They just don't get it.”

Anyone with information about the shooting should contact Clairton police at 412-233-6213.
