A second person has been charged with attempted homicide in connection to a home invasion and shooting in Pittsburgh’s Lincoln-Lemington neighborhood that left a resident critically wounded last year, officials said Friday.

Ziare Mauro, 20, was arrested Thursday on Western Avenue in Pittsburgh’s North Side, Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Alicia George said. Mauro faces several charges, including aggravated assault, burglary, robbery, conspiracy and attempted homicide.

Around 12:30 p.m. on March 23, 2017, police received a report of a possible home invasion on Paulson Avenue.

When officials arrived, they found a man inside the home suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest, George said. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was listed in critical condition but recovered.

Mauro is the second suspect arrested in connection to the shooting.

Deon Reese, 42, of Pittsburgh’s Chateau neighborhood, was taken into custody on an existing warrant on May 3, 2017, George said.

Reese has been charged with attempted criminal homicide, aggravated assault, robbery, burglary, firearms violations and recklessly endangering another person.

Further details were not immediately available.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
