Tip used to find Hazelwood man wanted in slaying

Acting on a tip from a Comcast "Fugitive Files" viewer, Allegheny County sheriff's deputies and Pittsburgh police on Wednesday arrested a Hazelwood man wanted for a fatal shooting in May.

Deputies arrested Dominick Evans, 18, on homicide charges for the death of Kevin Williams, who was killed on Almeda Street in Hazelwood, said Sgt. Doug Clark of the sheriff's office.

The television viewer said Evans was in the North Side. Police said they found Evans inside a house on North Charles Street with a Ruger 9 mm and a .44-caliber Colt handgun.

Evans and Anthony "Doobie" Robinson are accused of shooting Williams as part of an argument after a drug deal, police said. Robinson is in custody.

A tip through the sheriff's Web site led to the arrest of an unrelated fugitive wanted on multiple charges for assaulting a police officer. Deputies arrested Patricia Smalls, 48, of the North Side, on accusations she physically assaulted a police officer in 2006.

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.
