A Sharpsburg man who is in the Allegheny County Jail awaiting a preliminary hearing on robbery charges filed in connection with a home invasion in Pittsburgh's Fineview neighborhood was charged with attempted homicide on Wednesday in the shooting of a jitney driver.

Joseph Parker, 22, is accused of wounding David Calhoun during the robbery that occurred shortly before 3 a.m. on Dec. 22 along Belleau Drive, city police Lt. Daniel M. Herrmann said. Calhoun told police he picked up Parker in Hazelwood and drove him to Fineview.

Calhoun said Parker pulled out a handgun, told him, “You know what time it is,” and shot him in the thigh before stealing his jacket and cellphone, Herrmann said.

The home invasion occurred a short time later and Parker was arrested that day, court records show.
