Man charged in overnight Moon Township shooting

MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. — The Allegheny County Police Department has charged a man for an overnight shooting in Moon Township.

A 911 call placed just after midnight Tuesday alerted investigators to a shooting in the 200 block of Abbott Street. When they arrived, they learned the shooting took place on Maple Street Extension.

Police say a 23-year-old man was found shot in the leg. Online court documents say he was shot several times in his legs and buttocks. He was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

Allegheny County Police Department detectives learned the victim was inside a home with a group of people when a man identified as Gregory Slade, 36, of Ambridge, shot at him several times. While investigating, detectives found several spent rounds of ammunition and a gun in the home.

According to online court documents, the victim went to several Ambridge bars with four other men and ended the night at the house on Maple Street Extension. While at that house, the victim told police each man brandished and pointed a gun at him, accusing him of taking part in a robbery a couple days before.

The court documents claim Slade was the only person who fired a gun at the victim.

Slade is facing several charges, including aggravated assault and persons not to possess a firearm.
