Two men are facing homicide charges related to Friday's shooting of a Knoxville man.

Rayshon Shields, 21, and Khamal Fooks, 18, were arrested Friday night and charged with the shooting of 54-year-old Roger Griffin.

A witness told Pittsburgh police that Mr. Griffin was discussing a deal to buy heroin stamp bags from Mr. Shields and Mr. Fooks at his home in the 100 block of Zara Street when they drew firearms and demanded money. A second witness said Mr. Fooks shot Mr. Griffin when he tried to flee the home after the robbery. Witnesses later identified Mr. Fooks and Mr. Shields through a photo array.

Mr. Fooks and Mr. Shields both face charges of criminal homicide, criminal conspiracy and robbery. Mr. Fooks faces an additional charge of carrying a firearm without a license.
