A Marshall-Shadeland man shot during a Carrick home invasion Tuesday has been charged with breaking into the home and other crimes.

Christopher Thomas, 27, is awaiting arraignment on charges of burglary, robbery, aggravated assault and other crimes, according to online court records.

Pittsburgh public safety spokeswoman Sonya Toler said Mr. Thomas was also wanted in connection with a rape case that occurred in Pittsburgh in April.

Police were called to a home on Merritt Avenue about 2:20 a.m. Tuesday for a report that shots had been fired. When they arrived, they found Mr. Thomas lying face down on steps in front of the building, and officials took him to UPMC Mercy, where he remained this morning.

Another man, David Calhoun, 31, was found dead inside.

Police said Mr. Thomas and Mr. Calhoun fired a weapon through an apartment door and a 19-year-old man fired three shots with a shotgun. The man's 17-year-old girlfriend was also inside at the time. The man who fired the shots has not been charged.
