Investigators have taken a suspect into custody in the shooting of a cab driver who is Muslim in the city’s Hazelwood neighborhood in the early morning hours of Thanksgiving Day.
Pittsburgh Police announced the arrest at a press conference Wednesday afternoon. They identify the suspect as 26-year-old Anthony Mohamed of Hazelwood.
Five days earlier, and just after the ISIS attacks in Paris, this was the headline:
A Muslim civil rights group is asking the Justice Department to investigate the shooting of a Pittsburgh taxi driver.
The driver was shot Thanksgiving night in the Hazelwood section of Pittsburgh, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wants the Justice Department to investigate the case as a hate crime.
According to reports, the 38-year-old driver picked up the man outside the Rivers Casino about 1 a.m. Thursday.
