PITTSBURGH (AP) - Authorities in western Pennsylvania say a second suspect has been arrested in the shooting death of a teenage girl on a Pittsburgh street last fall.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (https://bit.ly/2fDt9Ps ) reports that the Allegheny County district attorney’s office announced Wednesday that 19-year-old Douglas Lockett Jr. was arrested in Detroit this week with the aid of local police and federal marshals.

Pittsburgh police last month charged Lockett with homicide, robbery and other crimes in the Sept. 17 death of Daija McCall, who was found lying near a Homewood intersection and pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities allege that the shooting happened during a drug transaction. A 16-year-old youth was arrested earlier.

Court documents don’t list an attorney for Lockett and a listed number for him couldn’t be found Wednesday.
