The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Group Violence Intervention Unit arrested Terrence Brown, 29, of Brighton Heights, and Jerome Brown, 30, of Brookline in connection with a shooting in Arlington on Wednesday, April 19.

Terrence Brown’s charges include criminal attempt homicide, aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy, person not to possess a firearm, and firearms not to be carried without a license. Jerome Brown’s charges include criminal attempt homicide, aggravated assault and criminal conspiracy. Both were taken into custody and are in the Allegheny County Jail.

Mid-afternoon on April 12, Zone 3 officers were sent to the 3100 block of Cordell Place for the report of a shooting. According to police, two 26-year-old men were inside of an apartment when another two men knocked on the door.

The men confronted each other and an argument ensued in the hallway. At least one of the suspects was armed with a gun, which was discharged during the argument. 

Both male victims sustained injuries during the incident and were transported to UPMC Mercy Hospital. One victim was initially believed to have been grazed in the head by a bullet; however, it was later discovered his injury was blunt force and not a graze wound. He was in critical but stable condition. 

The other victim was struck in the leg by a bullet and was in stable condition.
