York City detectives have obtained an arrest warrant for the alleged triggerman in Saturday night's double homicide, York City Police Chief Wes Kahley said.
Laquan Anderson Pierrelouis, 22, whose last-known address was in the 900 block of West King Street, is wanted for the 7 p.m. homicides of Manchester Township residents Braydon Aldinger, 23, of Danielle Court, and Derek Ferree, 26, of Old Mill Inn Road.
"The two victims intentionally called Pierrelouis and a Hispanic male to the 500 block of West Mason Avenue in order to conduct a drug transaction," Kahley said.
Drug deal: Aldinger and Ferree indicated they wanted to buy drugs from Pierrelouis, the chief said. But the deal went bad.
"We haven't spoken with (Pierrelouis) yet to get his side of the story," Kahley said, and he is urged to turn himself in. It's unclear whether Aldinger and Ferree personally knew Pierrelouis, who is known as "Q."
According to charging documents, a witness was with Aldinger and Ferree when they met up with Pierrelouis and the Hispanic male. The witness told detectives a physical altercation erupted during the drug deal.
'Give me that': The witness heard Pierrelouis repeatedly tell the Hispanic male, "Give me that!" after which the male gave him a handgun, documents state.
Pierrelouis then fired at the victims at least three times before running off, documents state.
In addition to Pierrelouis, detectives also are looking for the man who was with him when gunfire rang out, Kahley said.
Aldinger and Ferree were pronounced dead at the scene at 7:05 p.m. Saturday, according to the York County Coroner's office.
Autopsies performed Monday morning determined Ferree died of a gunshot wound to the torso and one to the neck, while Aldinger died of a single gunshot wound to the torso, York County Coroner Barry Bloss said.
Not run over: On Monday morning, Kahley confirmed police received reports that one of the victims was run over after being shot, but said he was waiting to see what the autopsies would show.
On Monday afternoon, Bloss said he doesn't believe the rumor is true, because nothing at autopsy indicated either man was run over.
The chief said anyone with information about Pierrelouis' whereabouts -- or the identity and whereabouts of the man with him -- should immediately call city detectives at (717) 849-2219, or call the city's anonymous crime tip line, (717) 849-2204. Or anonymously text a tip to YORKTIPS at 847411.
