Larimer man charged with shooting girlfriend's cousin

Sunday, March 2, 2014, 6:57 p.m.
 

Pittsburgh police arrested a Larimer man on charges he shot his girlfriend's cousin in the foot, then locked himself in her home with three children.

Kalvin Robert Jones, 34, was arguing with his girlfriend over her cell phone outside a house on Mayflower Street about 9:30 p.m. Saturday, until she went inside and her cousin tried to push Jones out the door, according to a police affidavit. Jones pulled out a gun and shot the cousin, identified as Lamont Vaughn, once in the right foot, then fled, police said.

Jones' girlfriend, whom police found applying pressure to Vaughn's wounded foot when they arrived, told officers that Jones likely fled to their shared home on Lowell Street, where her three children were staying. Though Jones initially refused officers' orders to come out, his girlfriend called him to verify the children were inside and she convinced him to come outside shortly after 9:45 p.m.

Jones was charged with three counts of endangering the welfare of children, aggravated assault, carrying a firearm without a license, and possession of drugs with intent to deliver after he directed officers to two weapons and marijuana in the house.

A judge arraigned Jones Sunday. He remained at the Allegheny County Jail on $250,000 bail.
