PITTSBURGH —

Police said they have arrested three men in connection with a shooting at Edgewood Towne Center on Saturday.

Investigators said 19-year-old Davon Nichols was taken into custody Monday night. Detectives said Nichols was identified through surveillance video as being present with one of the two shooters.

Police said Nichols refused to cooperate with investigators and was charged with hindering apprehension.

Nichols was arrested at a home on South Avenue in Wilkinsburg, police said, along with two other people who were identified as being at the shopping center at the time of the shooting.

Pittsburgh homicide detectives and Wilkinsburg police said they executed a search warrant at the home and seized heroin, cash and six handguns.

Nichols. Anthony Winbush, 23, and Graceson Spruill, 21, are all facing gun and drug charges.

Meanwhile, police said they're still searching for another man in connection with the shooting that left three bystanders hurt.

An arrest warrant was issued Monday for Tyron Manns. Investigators said Manns, 23, was identified in surveillance video as one of the gunmen and should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.

Police told Channel 11 that the two shooters knew each other.  They said one shooter was in Sneaker Villa, and the other one was outside.  They made eye contact and started shooting at each other, hitting three bystanders, police said.

One bystander was hit in the leg, the second in the upper hip and the third person, a man, 20, was shot in the upper body.

The 20-year-old, who police said knew the group involved in the shooting, underwent surgery at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital Saturday.

The other two people shot, a woman, 51, and a man, 29, were also taken to Presby.

Anyone with information on Mann’s whereabouts is being asked to contact police.

The second gunman has not been identified.
