Pittsburgh Man Arrested For Shooting Wife And Leaving Her Stranded On Highway

A man in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has been located and arrested almost two months after shooting his wife and leaving her on a highway ramp, CBS News reports.

On November 28th, Kevin Crews and his wife began arguing as she was driving on Interstate 579. The argument turned violent, and Crews reportedly shot her in the leg. After being asked to switch seats, so that Crews could take his injured to receive medical care, he got into the driver’s seat, and left her on the side of an exit ramp.

Investigators temporarily closed off the ramp to investigate as the suspect’s wounded wife was transported by EMTs to a nearby hospital. Though the healing process will take time, she is expected to fully recover.

This past Saturday, Pittsburgh police received a tip that led officers to the apartment of Crews’ girlfriend, Chelsey McIntosh. Though the suspect was not there, McIntosh confessed to making arrangements for Crews to safely hideout at. Shortly after, the suspect was found in a neighboring apartment.

“I commend my detectives and personnel for swiftly acting on the information they developed today leading to the apprehension of this dangerous individual,” Sheriff Kevin Kraus said in a statement. “The actions of this defendant represented a clear threat to the victim and the public.”

Kevin Crews was arrested without incident and charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and firearms charges. McIntosh has been charged with hindering apprehension.
