WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. (AP) - A man has been jailed on charges he fatally shot a man in a car at a western Pennsylvania low-income housing complex.

Police say 26-year-old Derek Price Jr. was picking up his girlfriend at the Mon View Heights complex about 9 a.m. Saturday when he was shot.

Police say 22-year-old Zyaire (ZY’-ayr) James, of Clairton, shot Price in the car after his girlfriend got out of the vehicle to get something she’d forgotten.

Police say both men had a romantic interest in the young woman, and that James shot Price because he was upset after seeing Price punch the woman moments earlier.

Online court records don’t list an attorney or James, who faces a preliminary hearing Friday on charges of criminal homicide and carrying a firearm without a license.
