Investigators have arrested a man in the fatal shooting of one person and wounding of another on Friday night at a home on Westwood Drive in Penn Hills.

Ronald Riviere, 22, was arrested at a home in Plum on Tuesday and charged with fatally shooting Brandon Stokes, 21, and wounding Kwasi Prince, 21, both of Penn Hills, at a party.

The men were hit with a single gunshot that was fired when Riviere reached into his pocket for money so Stokes could go on a “food run” to McDonald's, according to statements witnesses made to police.

Riviere drove both men to the hospital, police said. Stokes, who was shot in the chest, died at UPMC Presbyterian in Oakland. Prince was shot in the stomach.

Riviere is charged with homicide, carrying a gun without a license and aggravated assault.
