4 wounded in McKees Rocks restaurant shooting
Sunday, July 27, 2008

Allegheny County police are looking for a suspect who they say wounded four people early this morning at a McKees Rocks restaurant and bar.

The suspect is a black man identified as Marlin Jackson, 28. Homicide detectives said he faces four counts each of aggravated assault and recklessly endangering another person and one count of carrying a firearm without a license.

Homicide detectives said two men and two women were injured when shots were fired inside Becker’s Cafe on Olivia Street at about 1:15 a.m. They did not identify the victims.

A witness said the incident caused people to run screaming into the streets around the restaurant, which is located in the part of McKees Rocks known as The Bottoms.

This is awesome. I was sitting in a parked car right down the street from there yesterday.  In fact, while I was down there, some giant Neanderthal-esque guy chugging a big container of Turner’s iced tea, lumbered past the car and shouted hello to another guy across the street. In his next breath, he then asked, “Hey, when did you get out?” AND YOU KNOW WHAT HE MEANT.

I bet that guy across the street was Marlin Jackson, that motherfucker.
