July 6, 2019

NORTH VERSAILLES, Pa. (AP) — Authorities are seeking a woman in a shooting in a western Pennsylvania Walmart.

Allegheny County police say 22-year-old Rojanai Alston of Penn Hills is being charged with attempted homicide and aggravated assault.

Detectives say a 25-year-old woman was critically wounded when she was shot multiple times at about 9:30 p.m. Friday in the electronics section of the North Versailles (Vuhr-SAYLZ’) store.

Detectives say the victim and another woman got into a fight with the suspect before the shooting.

Walmart said it was cooperating with investigators and “Our thoughts are with the victim and her family.”

The reason for the altercation and the motive for the shooting weren’t immediately known.

Court documents don’t list a defense attorney; a message left at a number listed for Alston’s address wasn’t immediately returned Saturday.
