Man arrested in North Side shooting death

| Sunday, Nov. 9, 2008

One man is under arrest and another is being sought in connection with the shooting death of the owner of popular North Side clothing store, police said today.

Edward Dixon, 19, of the North Side faces charges of homicide, robbery, carrying a firearm without a license and criminal conspiracy, Pittsburgh police said. Investigators did not release the name of the second suspect.

Michael Ross, 45, of Homewood, was shot and killed Saturday inside his shop, CM & M Fashions in the 1100 block of Hodgkiss Street. Ross was shot in the head, body and ankle and pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives said Ross was working inside the store when two men, dressed in black with their faces covered, entered the store around 1 p.m. Dixon has been identified as the driver of a GMC Yukon, which the suspects used to flee from the scene, police said.

"We've identified a second suspect and we are continuing to investigate," police Lt. Kevin M. Kraus said.

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.
