Man sur­ren­ders to face charge in 3-year-old’s shoot­ing death

Imperial Valley Press - - OPINION -

Author­i­ties say a man has turned him­self in to face a firearms charge in the shoot­ing death of a 3-year-old girl in Pitts­burgh.

Pub­lic safety of­fi­cials said 40-yearold Paul Par­rish sur­ren­dered Fri­day af­ter­noon. He’s charged with be­ing a felon il­le­gally in pos­ses­sion of a firearm.

Po­lice say Yasha Ross of Co­raopo­lis was shot March 12 in a home in the Mount Washington neigh­bor­hood and later died at Al­legheny Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal.

The pub­lic safety depart­ment said the shoot­ing re­mains un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion, but it’s pos­si­ble that the child “may have ac­ci­den­tally shot her­self.”

Po­lice said the gun be­longed to an ac­quain­tance of Par­rish’s. Court doc­u­ments don’t list a de­fense at­tor­ney for Par­rish who could re­spond to the charge, and a listed num­ber for Par­rish couldn’t be found Satur­day.
