DUQUESNE, Pa. -- The Allegheny County Sheriff's Department arrested a man wanted in connection with a deadly sweet 16 party shooting in Duquesne.

Drew Henderson-Bracey, 18, was killed and seven other people were injured at the Dec. 18 party.

According to police, after interviewing several people at the party, Quentin Ingram, 25, was identified as the suspect.

On Dec. 20 a warrant was issued for Ingram’s arrest. After weeks of investigating, police said they determined Ingram was staying at an apartment on Center Avenue in North Versailles.

Ingram was arrested at the apartment Wednesday at about 9 a.m. He faces criminal homicide charges, as well as many others.

Police said Ingram started firing shots in the basement of a house on South Fifth Street. About 50 people were inside the house at the time of the shooting, police said.

A mother of a girl who was grazed by one of the bullets said she’s glad Ingram will be charged with homicide.

“I’m happy he’ll be brought to justice,” the mother said. “But, at the end of the day it’s still sad. Nobody won and everybody lost something. My daughter lost her innocence by seeing her childhood friend shot right in front of her.”
