Police charge three men with shooting that injured man in Greenfield

Sunday, July 21, 2013, 8:18 p.m.
 

Pittsburgh police on Sunday arrested three men in connection with an early morning shooting in Greenfield that might have left one victim paralyzed.

Officers responded to a gunfire call at the intersection of Stanley Street and Connor Street shortly after 2:15 a.m. and found a bullet-riddled Pontiac G6 and Diallo Mitchell Jr. with a wound in his back.

Mitchell was transported to UPMC Presbyterian in critical but stable condition. Police said he might be paralyzed by a bullet in his spine.

Officers stopped a vehicle that witnesses said belonged to the suspects, later identified as Brian and Ryan Kelly, both 20, and Connor Haney, 18, all of Greenfield.

People in the Pontiac told police that they had gotten text messages from girls directing them to meet at the Kellys' address, but on arrival they were approached by the three men, according to a police affidavit. They said Brian Kelly brandished a gun before handing it to Haney, who started firing at the car.

Haney also appeared to be wearing a bulletproof vest, according to the affidavit.

Haney was charged with attempted homicide, possessing instruments of a crime, conspiracy, carrying an unlicensed firearm and seven counts each of aggravated assault and reckless endangerment; Brian Kelly was charged with conspiracy, carrying an unlicensed firearm and seven counts of simple assault; Ryan Kelly was charged with conspiracy.

All three were arraigned Sunday and remain in the Allegheny County Jail.
