A McKeesport woman wanted in connection with a fatal shooting was arrested Wednesday in Chicago.

Gabrielle Parker, 33, was taken into custody without incident, said Michael Baughman of the U.S. Marshals Service in Pittsburgh.

Parker is charged by Allegheny County police with criminal homicide and carrying a firearm without a license in connection with the June 18 shooting death of Ericka J. Stevens, 29, of Pittsburgh, formerly of West Mifflin.

County homicide detectives allege that Parker shot Stevens in a parking lot in the 500 block of Fifth Avenue following a fight in a nearby bar.

Baughman said that the Western Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force was called in to assist the county police and that marshals developed information that Parker might be hiding in Chicago.

Marshals located Parker at a home on West 12th Street, Baughman said, and arrested her. A preliminary hearing on the homicide charges has not yet been scheduled.
