Police: Teen Arrested, Charged in Brashear H.S. Shooting

CBS Pittsburgh, November 13, 2013

Police have charged a 16-year-old as an adult in a shooting near Brashear High School that left three teenagers injured just as school was letting out for the day on Wednesday afternoon.

According to sources, 16-year-old Anjohnito (A.J.) Willet, Jr., was brought in for questioning after being found at the home next door to his parents’ house on Rockland Avenue in Beechview a short time after the shots were fired.

Willet is facing several charges, including four counts each of criminal attempt homicide and aggravated assault, as well as a minor not to possess a firearm charge.

Pittsburgh Police Lt. Kevin Kraus told a late evening news conference that Willet was the lone gunman who wounded the three students.


A fourth teen who was with the other three was shot at, but was not hit.

Lt. Kraus said Willet is being charged as an adult.

This shooting may go back to a robbery on Oct. 18.

Police say the shooting outside of the high school was the result of Willet being robbed at school last month by the same students who he fired at.

He didn’t want to file a report on last month’s robbery, Lt. Kraus told reporters, rather “he took matters into his own hands.”

The shooting happened outside of Brashear High School around 3 p.m.


While witnesses said they saw several gunmen, Lt. Kraus said investigators are certain Willet was the only one who fired as many as eight shots.

    It will get just about as much coverage from the mainstream media as a local veterinarian having found a new way to be more cost and time effective

      The story did get coverage initially because the msm thought that a shooting at a school must be by a White kid. They forgot the cardinal rule that almost all shootings in urban areas are committed by Blacks. Once they found out the details and race of the shooter they quickly dropped the story.

      Not to be a pedant but there is only one “NHL Commissioner” and no “NHL umpires”.
      Meanwhile the pictured perp looks like no sixteen year old I’ve ever known.

      • Magician

        That also is the scariest looking 16 year old I have ever seen

        Sorry about the misinformation! I am a fan of NBA, MLB and NHL

        • GOD

          You’re a fan of NBA? Why??

  • When it happened, I looked up the school on Great Schools, and it showed 54% white 35% black. That and the words the story used triggered my blackdar.

    Which turned out to be right. Good blackdar.

    However, because the shooter wasn’t a white beta male on what Half Sigma called “beta male rage,” this story goes into the rabbit hole, immediately.

  • DaveMed

    There’s something about the way he looks that just makes me think: “criminal.”

    • Skip Wellington

      “Negroid Features” for 100, Alex.

  • “Anjohnito”?

    (shakes head)

    • DaveMed

      Anjohnito. Oh, boy. This country is in trouble.

      • Erasmus

        Yup. It just screams, “Back to Africa!”

  • The one on the right has me thinking he should refrain from sticking wet fingers into light sockets.

    • Erasmus

      I’m sure he’s “da lookah dat all da sistahs wantz” among his homies.

    • Blue-eyed Devil

      LOL. Before I even read your comment, I was thinking the same exact thing.

    • No light sockets, he actually paid to have that done. Merely sticking fingers into an electrical socket would be free. He gets your money so as to have his hair professionally rendered in authentic traditional indiginous fashion.

    • foundingstockcracker

      Doesn’t he look like de Blasio’s son?

  • dd121

    Is it really that hard to understand why there used to be lynchings? These beasts have to be controlled.

    School days, school days
    Good ol’ Golden Rule days
    Readin’ and Writin’ and Rithmitic
    Taught to the tune of a hickory stick
    You were my Queen in calico
    I was your bashful barefoot beau
    And you wrote on my slate
    “I love you Joe”
    When we were a couple of kids.

    Gotta love this kid’s respect for good old American values.

    Youth of color love chicken wings.
    But the story seems amiss . . .
    Did they not secure ranch dressing too?

  • Spartacus

    Look at the dimwitted, soulless stare in that thing’s eyes, and tell me it doesn’t make you proud to be White .

    • Amen.

    • It makes me very relieved to not be black; that’s for sure!

    • Blue-eyed Devil

      Imagine being a White father and your daughter brings home one of these porch monkeys.

      • Ariadne would find herself living with her grandparents that same week, in an area where there aren’t any groids. If she does that after the age of 18, we will simply sit her down and tell her we don’t have a daughter anymore.

        • Blue-eyed Devil

          I respect you for that. Tough love. I told my two White/Asian daughters if they ever took up with a black, I would NEVER speak to them again. They knew I meant it. They both have White boyfriends and the older one is engaged. I did my job as a father.

      • Spartacus

        I’d kill them both.

  • [Guest]

    Anjohnito Willet and I do not belong on the same continent. Send him and his kinsmen across the Atlantic Ocean, down around the equator. And hurry!

  • It just occurred to me.

    If only this school had Commune Core, Anjohnito Willet would be too busy doing trigonometry problems and reading John Milton, and wouldn’t have time to shoot his friends.

    • Funruffian

      Common Core. LOL. Those resource and core classes are filled with Bantus and all other idiot rejects who are illiterate and innumerate.

  • Funruffian

    Delivery drivers should be allowed to carry pistols while en route. This will curtail a lot of monkeyshines.

    • I believe in Detroit they only pairs of workers deliver.

    • The lawsuit happy Professional Blacks would sue the companies involved even over legally justified shootings. US tort law has some very tragic quirks.

      Please remember the huge settlement Denny’s paid, and this wasn’t over staff shooting armed robbers.

  • Raydonn

    What in the world IS that ‘thing’ pictured above?

    • Judging from Anjohnito’s “hair”, it is makeup work in progress for the next “Predator” movie.

      • Blue-eyed Devil

        Good one!

      • blight14

        I’m rather certain that ‘equality’ thingy is an uber myth…..

    • Alexandra1973

      Someone who thinks he looks “fly,” gnomesayin’?

      It’s one of several million members of America’s most dysfunctional and also most honored, revered, praised, and pampered groups.

  • Magician

    If Obongo had a brain

    • Alexandra1973

      Great, now I have that “Wizard of Oz” song running through my head!

  • Blue-eyed Devil

    Now I’ve heard everything. Mr. Dreadlocks here has the given name of (drum roll please)… “Anjohnito”.

    • Could it have been because his mother was only 13 and couldn’t spell “Anjohnitovonious”? The poor dear grew up on a food desert with white privilege flying left and right and it stunted the development of her brain.

  • Blue-eyed Devil

    A White guy with an AR-15 would make national news. The tribe who runs CNN would have nonstop coverage on it.

  • GOD

    Still waiting for blacks and liberals to claim that video cameras are racist. What’s taking them so long??

  • Chicken wing bones at the bus stop? It goes to a bad neighborhood.

  • lessthantolerant

    Damn Amish! Sorry could not resist the levity. Is anyone really surprised it is just another feral black youth with a gun? When are people going to realize that black youth continue to get more and more feral and will soon need culled?
