Pitts­burgh po­lice have ob­tained an ar­rest war­rant for a man wanted in the 2016 shoot­ing of a teenager in Sher­aden.

Emere Ma­son, 18, of Sher­aden was charged Tues­day with homi­cide and car­ry­ing a firearm with­out a li­cense. Po­lice said he shot 17-year-old Rashawn “Ray Ray” Gib­sonin the 2700 block of Glen MawrStreet on Dec. 20.

De­tec­tives search­ing the area after the shoot­ing said they found Mr. Ma­son and an un­named wit­ness in­side an aban­doned house in the 2700 block of Ze­phyr Av­enue, ac­cord­ing to a crim­i­nal com­plaint.

The wit­ness told in­ves­ti­ga­tors that he and Mr. Ma­son were walk­ing around the neigh­bor­hood when they saw Rashawn. The wit­ness said he left for a short time and re­turned to find Mr. Ma­son and Rashawn stand­ing face to face at the in­ter­sec­tion of Glen Mawr Street and Nar­cis­sus Av­enue.

Mr. Ma­son told the wit­ness that he and Rashawn were go­ing to fight, ac­cord­ing to the com­plaint. The wit­ness told in­ves­ti­ga­tors he ran away when he saw Mr. Ma­son pull a gun from his waist­band.

The wit­ness said he heard a shot and turned to see Mr. Ma­son and Rashawn still fac­ing each other. He said he de­cided again to run, then heard an­oth­er­shot. The wit­ness re­turned to the house on Ze­phyr Av­enue, and Mr. Ma­son showed up a short time later, ac­cord­ing to the com­plaint. The wit­ness asked Mr. Ma­son if he had shot Rashawn, and Mr. Ma­son said he thought he did.

Mr. Ma­son and the wit­ness re­mained in the house un­til the de­tec­tives found them, the com­plaint said. Mr. Ma­son re­mained at large late Tues­day.
