Zaijuan Hester: Full Story Of East Pittsburgh Teenager Who Ran With Antwon Rose

Zaijuan Hester, who was with Antwon Rose prior to his fatal shooting in East Pittsburgh, has been arrested by the Allegheny County Police. On Tuesday, June 26, the police department announced that they arrested the 17-year-old late Monday night in connection to a drive-by shooting that occurred in North Braddock prior to the police-involved shooting which ended Rose’s life.
Rose and Hester had run from a vehicle as police were handcuffing the driver of the vehicle which matched a description of a vehicle previously connected to the drive-by shooting.
From CBS KDKA 11-Pittsburgh:

Both Hester, and Antwon Rose ran from a jitney after it was pulled over by police officer Michael Rosfeld. Rosfeld shot and killed Antwon Rose but until last night Hester remained at large.
While police did confirm to KDKA’s Andy Sheehan that Hester will be charged in connection with the drive-by shooting in North Braddock, they will not confirm if he will be charged with doing the actual shooting.

Along with being charged in connection to the drive-by shooting, Hester has been charged with a probation violation for filing off an ankle monitoring bracelet. He was arrested in the Hill District along with a 19-year-old woman, who is facing a retail theft charge.
Rosfeld is on paid leave while Allegheny County homicide detectives investigate the death of Rose. Rose, 17, was shot three times and killed after he allegedly ran away from a traffic stop. Rose was a student at Woodland Hills High School last year.
