Pittsburgh Woman Killed For Rejecting A Man At Bar



Janese Talton-Jackson, 29, was shot and killed Friday morning in Homewood, Pittsburgh after leaving a bar, and the suspect is now in custody after being shot by police.

“There was some conversation,” said acting police Chief Thomas Stangrecki. “She didn't want anything to do with him.”
When she left with her friends, the man followed her outside and fatally shot her in the chest, Pittsburgh police said.
Police arrested and charged Charles Anthony McKinney, 41, of Penn Hills with homicide, aggravated assault, illegally possessing a firearm, attempting to elude police, reckless endangerment and drug possession.
ShotSpotter, the city's gunshot detection system in the eastern neighborhoods, picked up gunshots just before 2 a.m. near the intersection of Upland Street and North Lang Avenue in Homewood.
Police arrived to find Talton, 29, of Penn Hills lying on a sidewalk with a gunshot to her chest.
Medics pronounced her dead at the scene, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office.
Other officers patrolling the area because of the gunshot detection system saw a silver Chevrolet Malibu speeding along Upland, according to a criminal complaint.
They pulled over the vehicle on North Homewood Avenue and approached with their weapons drawn, ordering the driver — later determined to be McKinney — to show his hands. As the police officers approached, a radio transmission reported a female found shot nearby.
McKinney heard the report and sped away, the complaint states.
The officers chased McKinney through Homestead and again approached the car after he struck a tree and stopped.
McKinney sped off toward several uniformed police officers, and police fired shots at the car, the complaint states.
The pursuit, which involved other officers, reached speeds of 60 mph and went from Homestead into Wilkinsburg and then Edgewood before the Malibu raced onto the Parkway East and exited at Wilkinsburg, where it crashed into two parked cars, the complaint states.
Police officers removed McKinney from the Malibu and discovered he had a gunshot wound near his right temple. McKinney was treated at UPMC Presbyterian.
