A 16-year-old who had no problem posting a $10,000 straight bond one-day after being charged with shooting another teen near the Wood Street T-station last week, has had that bond revoked.
Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey A. Manning ordered Denzel Glover, of Northview Heights, to the Allegheny County Jail during a Sept. 19 preliminary hearing. He will await trial on charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, firearms violations and reckless endangerment in the Sept. 13 rush-hour shooting.
Assistant District Attorney Stephie Ramaley told Manning that Glover had two previous juvenile arrests—including one for taking a Taser into a school—and is affiliated with one of two warring groups. She said the shooting is likely part of an ongoing rivalry between rival groups from the North Side and East End.
According to Pittsburgh Police, Glover shot the 17-year-old victim on Sixth Street. The victim ran to the T-station where he then collapsed. Glover then attempted to flee on a PAT bus, but police sent out his description to all area bus drivers. One recognized Glover and pulled over. He was taken into custody by Port Authority Police.
The victim, who had been shot in the chest with a .22 caliber, was taken to Mercy Hospital in critical condition, but his condition was later upgraded to stable. Police found a backpack in an alley near Federal Street with a loaded .22 caliber revolver and other evidence linking it to Glover inside. They said video cameras also showed Glover carrying backpack.
