A woman who police said threatened a witness to a Saturday shooting in Carnegie surrendered to authorities on Tuesday.
Tashae Monae Griffin, 18, turned herself in at District Judge Dennis Joyce's office and was arraigned on charges of retaliation against a witness or victim, Carnegie police Chief Jeffrey Harbin said.
Ms. Griffin allegedly harassed a security guard at the Carnegie Towers apartment on Sunday afternoon about information he gave police concerning a shooting outside the complex the day before. She told the guard, "Just sit in your booth and do your job and don't worry about what happened outside," according to a criminal complaint. "You said the shooter came out of my dad's car and got him arrested. You're going to get yours."
Three people were wounded in the Saturday shooting, including a 2-week-old girl who was struck in the torso. All are expected to recover.
Police have arrested two Hazelwood men, Bryon Hall, 21, and James Edmonds Jr., 20, and continue to search for a third suspect believed to be the gunman, 19-year-old Rashad Watson, who lives in the Carrick area. Ms. Griffin and Mr. Edmonds have a child together.
Chief Harbin said detectives continue to search for a motive for the violence.
