McKEESPORT, Pa. — Arrest warrants were issued for two men on Thursday in connection to a triple shooting that killed two sisters in McKeesport.
Allegheny County police arrested one of the men, Miras Kelly, after he turned himself in on Thursday.
He is being charged with criminal homicide, robbery, and other charges, according to a release.
Police are still looking for Kylee Lankford. He is around 6 feet tall and about 150 pounds. Police say he should be considered armed and dangerous.
The shooting happened Sept. 1, when the suspects, Kelly and Lankford, planned to rob someone at a home on Gross Street, police said.

The sisters, Kimberly Lesko and Melodie Robb, were found shot to death in the home’s living room. Police say a 62-year-old man was found shot in a bedroom.
Police said Robb’s husband called 911 after he heard gunshots downstairs. Investigators found three shell casings at the scene.
Jeromie Anderson, son of Lesko and the nephew of Robb, spoke with Channel 11’s Gabriella Deluca and told her he is relieved that police have identified the two suspects, but he's sick that the motive behind the shooting is robbery and according to police papers, that the women were chosen randomly.
Police say the two men were coming down the alley.
Anderson said the front door was cracked because the women were hot. He thinks that made them an easy target.
He said the other man that was shot was not a relative and was staying with his aunt.
“They need to be thrown under the jail, to come down here and do what they did in the style that they did it in. They need to be thrown under the jail,” Anderson said.
Anderson just buried his mom and aunt yesterday.
Anderson has created a

"I'd like to thank the police and everybody that helped out. It really means a lot." said Anderson.
Anybody with information on Lankford is asked to contact Allegheny County Police at 412-473-3000.
