'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 North Versailles shot and killed his friend in a Wilmerding home Friday evening, Allegheny County police said.

Police charged Seth A. Dillon, 21, with criminal homicide and carrying a firearm without a license for the shooting of Shawn Januck, 18, of Wilmerding.

Police wrote in court document that Dillon told investigators he and Januck were standing in a kitchen about 8:30 p.m., with Dillon's gun lying on a table.

Dillon said when he picked up the gun, it fired, hitting Januck in the head. Witnesses told police that Dillon said he didn't know the gun was loaded.

Dillon remained in the Allegheny County Jail Saturday morning.
