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.
