Johnathan Jermia Morris is a 31-year-old suspect who is accused of killing one McKeesport Police and injuring another.

Police claim that Johnathan Morris also shot fellow officer Charles Thomas. Candance Taylor, KEMorris’ mother, was a former McKeesport police officer.

Later, when he was discovered running, an officer, later identified as Sluganski, radioed, “Watch his right hand in pocket, appears real heavy.”

According to the complaint, another cop who was later identified as Thomas radioed in to report that shots were fired and he was struck. He fired back and hit Morris in the leg.
