Michael St. Clair, 24, of Beaver Falls was arraigned Monday on criminal homicide, conspiracy, robbery and weapon charges in the deaths of Diondre Dozier, 17, and Martin Brown, 18.

St. Clair is jailed without bail pending an April 24 preliminary hearing. Online court records did not list a lawyer to comment on the charges.

Police say St. Clair told a relative he fired gunshots during the Nov. 17 confrontation on Glen Mawr Street and told another person he shot at people who shot him.

Investigators recovered two high-powered assault rifles and a .22-caliber handgun from the crime scene.

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.
