Carnegie police today accused a woman of confronting a witness after her child's father was arrested in connection with the Saturday shooting of three people.
In a press release, Carnegie police chief Jeffrey C. Harbin said Tashae Monae Griffin, 18, "began to harass and threaten" a Carnegie Towers security guard Sunday afternoon "about the information he provided to police" the day before.
Police have a warrant for her arrest charging her with retaliation against a witness or victim.
Three people -- one a 2-week-old girl -- were shot Saturday in Carnegie.
Byron Hall, 21, and James Edmonds Jr., 20, were charged Sunday with conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and reckless endangerment. Police also issued an arrest warrant for Rashad Watson, 19, on charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, conspiracy and receiving stolen property.
Chief Harbin's release said Ms. Griffin and Mr. Edmonds have a child together. The release also said Ms. Griffin was questioned after the shooting.
Though officers have searched for her for more than 24 hours, they have not yet been able to catch up with her.
