    Thompson was wanted on an arrest warrant for the shooting of Dwayne Muhammad on May 4 outside Muhammad’s mosque on South Avenue. Muhammad was selling the Final Call newspaper when he was shot multiple times.

    A man fled the scene and entered an abandoned apartment building, sparking a SWAT standoff. But when officers entered the building, it was empty.

    Thompson is in the Allegheny County Jail awaiting arraignment.
