A mother of two was followed to her car, shot and killed after she reportedly rebuffed a man's advances in a Pittsburgh bar.

According to WTAE, Janese Talton-Jackson, 29, of Penn Hills, Pa., located just outside Pittsburgh, was leaving the bar around 1:50 a.m. when the suspect followed her to her car, where she was shot, Pittsburgh police said. ShotSpotter, a gunshot-location system, notified police that shots had been fired in the area. When police arrived, they stopped Charles McKinney, 41, also of Penn Hills, on a traffic violation.


Police were talking with McKinney when it was radioed that a woman had been fatally shot. McKinney heard the dispatch and sped off, WTAE reports. Police chased McKinney through the area, firing on him as he drove through an intersection. McKinney was hit, then crashed his vehicle before he was taken into custody.

McKinney has been charged with homicide, WTAE reports.
