  • December 10, 2012

BEAVER FALLS (AP) — Police have charged three teenage boys in the fatal shooting of a Western Pennsylvania woman.

Beaver Falls police have charged 14-year-olds Todavia Cleckley and Marcus Velasquez and 13-year-old Kyle Goosby Jr. with criminal homicide and other charges in Saturday’s shooting of 22-year-old Kayla Peterson. She was shot about 3:30 p.m. that day and died in a Pittsburgh hospital two hours later.

Cleckley’s Facebook page shows a young man posing with a revolver in one hand and a pistol in the other. The photo was posted less than 12 hours after Peterson’s shooting.

Beaver Falls police Chief Charles Jones said Goosby is in custody. Police are still searching for the other two suspects.

Beaver County District Attorney Anthony Berosh said he intends to prosecute the boys as adults.
