3rd suspect arrested in Pittsburgh bar shooting that killed security guard


PITTSBURGH — Police have arrested a third suspect in the shooting death of a security guard at a Pittsburgh bar.

Eric McGuire turned himself in Wednesday and was charged with homicide, robbery and conspiracy in the Feb. 16 shooting death of 24-year-old Deion Nesbitt at the Rendezvous Phase III.

The 29-year-old is jailed without bail. Online court records did not list a lawyer to comment on the charges.

Police arrested 26-year-old Harvey Scott of Pittsburgh when he crashed his car near the bar after the shooting. They say 30-year-old Tiqwan Green of Wilkinsburg surrendered to police on Monday.

Police say Scott shot Nesbitt three times and grazed a female guard when they confronted him about pulling a gun from his ankle at the bar in the city's Homewood section.
