'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.

A Dunbar Township teenager has been charged as an adult after he allegedly shot and killed a man Thursday evening.

According to state police at Uniontown, Andrew Thomas Hustosky, 17, of 231 Hustosky Road, was charged with criminal homicide and recklessly endangering another person after he alledgedly shot and killed William Oburn Little IV, 22, of Connellsville.

Hustosky, Little, another male and a female were seated in the living room at Hustosky's home at 6 p.m. Jan. 2 when Hustosky picked up a .22 caliber Ruger pistol off a coffee table.

Police report that Hustosky pointed the pistol at Little, who was sitting to Hustosky's left, and fired one shot, striking Little in the head.

Little died at the scene from a single gunshot wound.

Hustosky was charged as an adult and transported to the Fayette County Booking Center for his arraignment. A preliminary hearing has not yet been scheduled.
