Judge orders Scott man to spend life in prison for fatally shooting man in Hill District
An Allegheny County judge on Wednesday ordered a Scott man to spend the rest of his life in prison without the possibility of parole for fatally shooting a man in the Hill District.
Common Pleas Judge Jill E. Rangos in March found Tersaun Cole, 22, guilty of first-degree murder, robbery, conspiracy and a firearms violation for fatally shooting Teante Hill, 30, on Dec. 30, 2010 during a drug deal in Elmore Square. Hill died the next morning at UPMC Mercy of gunshot wounds to his neck and body, according to case documents.
Police said a witness told them she saw Cole and two unknown men approach Hill with guns. Moments later, she heard four gunshots.
