Suspect arrested in shooting on Pittsburgh's South Side in May - TribLIVE

A Munhall man has been arrested in connection with an exchange of gunfire that wounded three people, including the suspect, on the city’s South Side in May.

The suspect, Shawn Johnson, Jr., 23, was arrested on a firearms violation warrant for a shooting that occurred in the 1700 block of E. Carson Street around 3 a.m. May 22, police said.

Johnson is being charged with illegal possession of a firearm and carrying a firearm without a license.

He was denied bail on the ground he is a danger to the community and was being held in the Allegheny County Jail, pending a hearing on Aug. 18, according to court records.

After the shootings, police tended to a man with a gunshot wound to the leg and a woman who suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the lower body. Another man was located near a parking lot on 18th Street, with a gunshot wound to the arm.

All were transported to local hospitals in stable conditions.

Police did not say which of the two male victims was Johnson.
