Woman wanted in deadly hit-and-run

PITTSBURGH — A Pittsburgh woman is wanted after police stated that she hit with a vehicle on Tuesday, killing him, before driving off.

Ausha Brown, 25, is wanted on homicide charges after the incident in the 7600 block of Kelly Street.

Pittsburgh police officers were flagged down by two women who directed them to a man laying in the road around 11 p.m. Tuesday.

They told police he had been struck by a vehicle which drove off. They provided a description of the vehicle and a BOLO was put out.

According to court documents, police found evidence on the scene including a purse with a Port Authority Card with the name of Ausha Brown.

Additionally, witnesses ID’d Brown through Facebook pictures and security video placed Brown at the scene in her black expedition.

The man, identified as Von Washington, 31, of Pittsburgh, was taken to the hospital in critical condition by paramedics where he later passed.

Police were able to determine through text messages that Washington accused Brown of seeing other people.

A memorial now marks the spot where Washington tragically lost his life.

The medical examiner said he suffered broken ribs and pelvic bone, and a gaping wound to his back. However, the cause of death was a laceration to the liver due to blunt force trauma.
