Police: Arsenal of illegal guns found inside teen murder victim's mom's house



PITTSBURGH - The mother of a teen murder victim was arrested Sunday after police said they found an arsenal of illegally owned weapons inside her Beltzhoover home.

Police were called to Deteshia Palmer’s home Sunday after a group of teens allegedly fired shots at a man, Marshall Addison Sr., who was washing his car on Fern Way. Addison told detectives the teens ran into Palmer’s home.

Palmer's 16-year-old son, Deondre Pace, was murdered outside a funeral home in January. Channel 11's Renee Kaminski reported that Addison's son, Marshall Addison Jr., was arrested as a suspect in the shooting.

Authorities said detectives found a sawed-off shotgun, a loaded revolver, a loaded pistol and a 9mm handgun inside Palmer's home.

Police said they questioned a group of teens, who denied firing the shots. Included in the group was Palmer's 12-year-old son.

According to police, Palmer told them she makes sure there’s food in the house for her children, but she doesn’t live there.
