Wilkinsburg shooting suspect arrested after a month on the run
A man wanted for more than a month in connection with a deadly shooting in Wilkinsburg was arrested Monday.
Triq Peek Price, 39, was arrested in McKeesport, according to Sgt. Venerando Costa of the Allegheny County Police.
Price is accused of shooting and killing David Herbin during an apparent robbery at a home on Laketon Road on June 4.
Price and Herbin, 49, were among five or six people at the home, smoking crack cocaine and drinking into the early morning, according to the charges filed a day after the shooting.
Everyone except Price was gathered in the living room shortly before 5 a.m., witnesses told police. That’s when Price walked in from the kitchen wielding a gun, according to the complaint.
Price allegedly demanded that Herbin and another victim hand over “everything they had,” and Herbin complied, police said. The second victim handed over a purse. Price then shot Herbin in the head and took off through a back door, according to police.
Herbin was pronounced dead a short time later. Four witnesses identified Price as the alleged shooter, police said.
In addition to homicide, Price is charged with robbery and drug and firearm violations.
