Just before 1:30 a.m., police said they spotted the Acura and tried to pull it over. Acie-Griffin sped off, and police said he crashed into several parked cars before officers could use spike strips to blow out the tires.

Acie-Griffin kept driving before police said he crashed over a hill on Madison Avenue in West Mifflin.

At that time, officers arrested Acie-Griffin and also recovered a gun in the car, believed to have been used in the homicide.

Acie-Griffin was taken to the Allegheny County Jail.

As far as a motive, police say Acie-Griffin had been harassing Williams because Williams was dating his ex-girlfriend.
