Police charge Oakmont man in fatal Penn Hills shooting

Friday, Aug. 22, 2014, 5:00 p.m.
 

Police accused an Oakmont man Friday of fatally shooting a Penn Hills man after a struggle in an apartment, court records show.

Allegheny County Police obtained an arrest warrant against Darshele Johnson, 39, on charges of homicide and carrying a firearm without a license. He is accused of shooting Christopher Moss.

Moss, 38, died at UPMC Presbyterian on Tuesday of a gunshot wound to the abdomen, according to a criminal complaint. He was shot in an apartment on Frankstown Road in Penn Hills on Sunday.

Witnesses told detectives that Moss was staying at the apartment when Johnson and a female companion visited the home on Sunday. One witness said Johnson went into the kitchen when Moss went into the bathroom. The two fought when Moss left the bathroom, the complaint said. The witness heard two shots and ran out of the apartment. A second witness, who had left the apartment before the shooting, returned when the first witness called and explained what happened, the complaint said.

Both witnesses identified Johnson from a photo array. Online court records do not indicate whether he has been arrested.
