Teenage girl slain at Pittsburgh-area complex


PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police in western Pennsylvania say a 16-year-old girl was shot and killed in a Pittsburgh-area housing complex.

Allegheny County investigators said police and paramedics were called to the Hawkins Village housing complex in Rankin address shortly after 7:30 p.m. Friday.

They told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the body of Delasia Dutrieuille was found near a playground.

Lt. Andrew Schurman said she was killed after a confrontation with two boys, possibly over a robbery earlier in the evening.

A police K-9 unit tracked the suspects, and one youth was taken into custody. An apartment building in nearby Braddock was being searched for a second suspect.
