Hearing postponed for Pittsburgh man accused of Arnold murder
A preliminary hearing for a Pittsburgh man accused in an April 5 murder in Arnold has been delayed until next month.
Shawden L. Ross, 33, of North Braddock Avenue is accused of fatally shooting Lamont Simmons, 27.
Ross’ hearing was moved to May 6 because a witness wasn’t available to testify Thursday.
Arnold and Westmoreland County detectives said Ross fired three or four bullets that hit Simmons, who died in Harrison’s Allegheny Valley Hospital about an hour after the shooting.
Detectives said Ross and Simmons argued along 16th Street and Fourth Avenue and the shooting occurred in the 1500 block of Ivy Alley, off of 16th Street.
In court documents, police said they found Ross in a residence along Fourth Avenue.
Police said they have the gun used to kill Simmons, a .22-caliber revolver that had been reported stolen. The gun was found in the residence where Ross was found, according to court documents.
Ross has been held in Westmoreland County Prison without bond since his arrest.
