'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 McKeesport man was convicted Friday of killing a teenager and injuring seven others at a “Sweet 16” birthday party in Duquesne.

A jury of eight women and four men found Quentin Ingram, 27, guilty of third-degree murder, carrying a firearm without a license and seven counts of recklessly endangering another person.

The jury deliberated for several hours spread over two days.

The trial before Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Donald E. Machen began Monday.

Chief Trial Deputy District Attorney Daniel Fitzsimmons said Ingram targeted Drew Henderson-Bracey, 18, when he opened fire in the basement of a house on South Fifth Street on Dec. 18, 2011.

Bracey was shot seven times, including three shots from close range, and died at the scene. Six teens sustained superficial gunshot wounds and a 15-year-old girl was hospitalized and later released.

No date has been set for Ingram's sentencing.
