'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 Medical Examiner's office said a Munhall man died of gunshots to the trunk and extremities during a violent exchange early Tuesday.

Authorities said Andrew Emmett Stevens, 23, died in a shootout with John Rozgonyi, 58, during a break-in at the garage behind Rozgonyi's Munhall home.

A forensic investigator said the office policy is to not release how many wounds may have occurred. He said the manner of death was homicide.

County police said District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr.'s office would investigate to determine if any charges should be filed against Rozgonyi.

A spokesman for Zappala said Thursday his office is waiting for county investigators to provide all reports about the shooting.

Shaun Conroy, 24, of Munhall, was arrested as an alleged accomplice of Stevens. He was arraigned Tuesday afternoon before Magisterial District Judge Eugene F. Riazzi Jr. in McKeesport on charges of burglary involving an overnight accommodation where no person was present, and conspiracy.

Conroy is free on $25,000 bond pending a hearing on Wednesday at 1 p.m. before Magisterial District Judge Thomas R. Torkowsky in Munhall.

Funeral arrangements for Stevens are being handled by Savolskis-Wasik-Glenn Funeral Home in Munhall. Visitation is planned this afternoon and tonight, with funeral Mass on Saturday at 9:30 a.m. at St. Therese Church in Munhall.

The funeral home's website obituary noted Stevens served as a Marine corporal in Afghanistan.
