Pittsburgh Police have arrested two suspects in the fatal shooting of a one-year-old boy last week.

29-year-old Andre Crawford of McKeesport and 41-year-old Marvin Hill are each facing criminal homicide and other charges in the death of Zykier Young.

A third suspect is wanted - polie are searching for 36-year-old Devon Thompson.

Police Commander Vic Joseph said they need more help from witnesses. "We have some people taken off the street. Maybe you feel a little safer now that they're off the street - call us, come see us, talk to us - we need more help, more information. This investigation is not over."

Police believe all three suspects were part of a Thine Place shootout when a stray bullet traveled through a window and two walls before hitting the child in the head.

Chief Scott Schubert said police will do what they can to help the family. "I can't even imagine being in their shoes; of the loss that they feel of their child."
