 I was just watching the news....am going to find the article but until then.

 

So how about this one?

 

The young mom was caught in a cross fire between the cops and a robber. Apparently they were robbing her and they held her 8 year old boy hostage. The mom was killed and later they found 47 bricks of heroinin her purse but that is not the kicker.....Her son had a bundle (10 stamps of heroine) in his sock. There was reason to believe that the kid was on his way to make a sell for his mom.....

 

WTF?

 

Going to look for the article....

 

Ok here it is...

 

Mom Killed In Crossfire Between Police, Men At East Hills Home

PITTSBURGH -- Police continue to search for more suspects in a shooting that left one person dead and two others injured in East Hills.

 

 

Police said the shooting happened at about 3:20 a.m. Sunday in the 2300 block of East Hills Drive when three masked men entered a home looking for drug money.

 

 

Arika Hainesworth, 24, was inside with an 8-year-old boy, and police said she called 911 and an associate before opening the door. When she let the group inside, shots were fired, police said.

 

 

When police arrived, more than 40 shots were exchanged with the suspects, authorities said.

 

 

Hainesworth, a mother of two, was struck. She was taken to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, where she was pronounced dead shortly after 4 a.m. It was not immediately clear who fired the shot that killed Hainesworth, police said.

 

 

Pittsburgh Police Chief Nate Harper said the home is known as a "safe house," which is where drug dealers hide their drugs.

 

 

"They do target single females, two or three kids possibly, and they hide their drugs there," Harper said. "They don't bring the drug trafficking to the house but for a safe haven or storage place."

 

 

Police arrested one of the shooting suspects, Richard Woodward, 19. He was shot in the torso but is expected to recover.

 

 

While investigating, police said they found 43 bricks of heroin in Hainesworth's purse and the boy's sock.

 

 

Two other people were taken to the UPMC Presbyterian Hospital for treatment. Officials have not released their names or the extent of their injuries.
