SHOOTING PROMPTS POLICE CHASE

One person is in police custody and another is still at large after a shooting in Homestead touched off a police chase that ended in Hazelwood.

A man was shot in the back about 10 a.m. today in an alley between 13th and 14th avenues. He was in critical condition at a hospital, police said.

Officers from multiple agencies pursued a white sedan from Homestead into Hazelwood, where it crashed on Flowers Avenue near Monongahela Street. Police captured one young man there and another darted up a hill and remains at large, said Allegheny County police Assistant Superintendent James Morton.

Police recovered two handguns, one at the scene of the crash and another in a yard a few streets away.

Detectives are investigating the possibility that the shooting could be retaliatory for other recent violence in Homestead.

PASTOR CHARGED WITH ASSAULTING DAUGHTER

A Beaver County pastor is facing charges that he assaulted his grown daughter during a family fight Thursday morning in Raccoon Creek State Park, state police said.

Darrell Cashdollar, 59, was carrying a gun in a wooded area of the park, so rangers called state police to the scene. Police monitored the area with helicopters and set up a perimeter until the incident de-escalated.

Park officers arrested the New Brighton man on charges of simple assault and harassment, rangers said.

There are no charges yet filed associated with the 38-caliber revolver he was carrying, said rangers. Mr. Cashdollar was a part- time deputy at the Beaver County sheriff's office more than 25 years ago, the sheriff said. Though he had a legal gun permit, the sheriff said the permit was now revoked and Mr. Cashdollar will not be allowed to carry the revolver anymore.

Mr. Cashdollar's wife, Carol Cashdollar, also was present at the scene, but rangers said the charges only involve his adult daughter Tiffany, whose last name was unknown. Rangers said Tiffany had visible marks on her neck when her father was arrested and that she was taken to the hospital for observation.

The pastor, who works at a church in Burgettstown, Washington County, was taken to Beaver County jail Thursday night, rangers said.
