A Duquesne man accused of killing the police chief of a small Allegheny Valley borough and wounding another police officer died following a confrontation Monday afternoon in the city of Pittsburgh.
Allegheny County police said Aaron Lamont Swan Jr., 28, formerly of Pittsburgh’s Lincoln-Lemington neighborhood, died after exchanging gunfire with several officers in a wooded area off of Columbiana Street in the Homewood-Brushton section of Pittsburgh.
Swan is suspected of killing Brackenridge police Chief Justin McIntire and wounding a Tarentum police officer following a foot chase in Brackenridge’s business district on Monday afternoon.
A city police officer was wounded by what appeared to be shrapnel, county police said.
Five guns believed to have been used by Swan were recovered following the incidents — four in Brackenridge and one in the city of Pittsburgh, said county police Sgt. Matthew Mineard in a prepared statement.
The borough of 3,200 residents is located along the Allegheny River to the northeast of Pittsburgh, about one hour from Duquesne.
Swan had been the subject of intense police activity since Sunday night, when Pennsylvania state police attempted to stop the car he was driving along Route 28. Police said Swan was wanted for violating his previous probation.
Court records indicate that Penn Hills police had been seeking Swan since January 2022 on charges of receiving stolen property, resisting arrest and fleeing police following an incident that happened on Christmas Day 2021.
Mineard said Swan sped away from troopers, only to be spotted Monday by police in nearby Harrison Twp. Swan fled again, this time on foot.
Police searched for Swan in several neighborhoods for hours without success, Mineard said.
Just after 4 p.m., Mineard said, Brackenridge police spotted Swan and gave chase in the 800 block of Third Street, where McIntire was shot.
Tarentum and Fawn Twp. officers then attempted to apprehend Swan near the intersection of Morgan Street and Brackenridge Avenue, where a Tarentum officer was shot in the leg. He is in stable condition at a hospital, Mineard said.
Police allege that Swan then entered a nearby home and demanded the residents give him the keys to their 2014 Subaru, then fled in the vehicle.
Pittsburgh police said the stolen car was spotted in that city’s Lincoln-Lemington neighborhood. Following a short pursuit, Mineard said, Swan crashed the stolen vehicle on Columbiana Street and fled on foot, firing at police officers who were closing in on him.
Pittsburgh police returned fire, Mineard said. Swan was pronounced dead at the scene at 6:40 p.m. Monday, the medical examiner’s office said.
Mineard said county homicide detectives are investigating both the Brackenridge shootings and Swan’s death and will turn their findings over to Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. when the investigation is complete.
Anyone with information concerning this incident is asked to call the Allegheny County Police Tipline at 1-833-255-8477. Callers can remain anonymous.
