McKees Rocks, PA – A 20 year-old student at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh was shot dead early Sunday trying to trade his iPad for drugs. The man, Malachi Urbini, had apparently contacted another man named “Tay” for heroin.
What started as a small trade of four bags for an iPod became twenty bags in exchange for the over-priced thingamajigger.
A witness who went with Urbini [pictured] stated that when he met the man he was shot repeatedly, then robbed of his iPad. He would be pronounced dead at Allegheny General Hospital shortly after the witness called police. The witness would later pick out 19 year-old Taivon Lamont Cunningham from a photo lineup. No word on whether or not there’s an app for that…
Cunningham was arraigned this morning on charges of conspiracy, robbery and homicide.Tags: Drugs, iPad, Malachi Urbini, Murder, Shooting, Taivon Lamont Cunningham
