Shots fired call leads to the arrest of suspect


Zone 3 police officers were sent to the intersection of Estella Avenue and Freeland Street for a report of 10 shots fired at approximately 2:30 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 20. A gray, four-door vehicle was seen speeding in the area.

While Officers were searching the area, a gray four-door Toyota Corolla drove down Climax Street at a high rate of speed. The officers observed the driver to be a male with black hair and a goatee who was wearing a black T-shirt. There were three other occupants of the vehicle, one wearing a white T-shirt. The suspect vehicle turned left on Curtain Avenue.

The officers suspected the occupants of the vehicle may have been involved in an earlier robbery near Larkins Way and 19th Street. One of the suspects in that robbery was armed with a gun. 

Officers found the vehicle had crashed at the end of Eutaw Street. Two men fitting the description of the occupants were located at Shiloh Street and Southern Avenue. One fled, the other did not try to flee and was eventually interviewed and released.

The suspect with the black T-shirt fled into a wooded area. Officers set up a perimeter and a K-9 unit responded. The K-9 located the suspect and bit him.

The suspect was taken into custody and Paramedics transported him to UPMC Mercy. He was identified as Daniel Dellenbaugh, 24, of Burgettstown.

Police later took him to the Allegheny County Jail on charges of escape, public drunkenness, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and fleeing or attempting to elude police officers.
