2 accused in Jeannette shooting arrested, taken to jail
Two people accused of involvement in a shooting that injured a Jeannette woman last week surrendered to police Wednesday, said Chief Shannon Binda.
Elijah T. Miles, 22, and DeJanette Ivy Crosby, 23, both of Mt. Pleasant, were taken to the Westmoreland County Prison.
Police had been looking for the pair since Friday after a woman was hurt during a shooting at her North Third Street home. Investigators said Crosby went to see her child at her ex-boyfriend’s home before 2 p.m. when an argument occurred.
Crosby allegedly grabbed the boy’s arm and his father refused to hand the boy over. He began to give the boy to the shooting victim, his mother, when he saw Miles standing in the doorway allegedly pointing a handgun at them, according to court papers.
The shot hit the victim in the leg. Crosby and Miles allegedly fled.
Miles was being held in the jail on $500,000 bail on charges of attempted homicide, unlawful possession of a firearm, reckless endangerment and related offenses. Crosby was being held on $100,000 bail on charges of burglary and conspiracy counts.
Neither had an attorney listed in online court records. Preliminary hearings are set for March 28.
