Hearing Set for Man Charged With Gun-Related Offenses

Tyrone Fuller, 31, is accused of holding a gun to a woman’s head and threatening her.

A McKeesport man is charged with aggravated assault and numerous other offenses after said he held a gun to a woman’s head and threatened her.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled Tuesday for Tyrone Fuller, 31, on charges of aggravated assault, unlawful body armor, recklessly endangering another person, terroristic threats, unlawful restraint and possession of weapons.

Police said the incident happened at 2:15 a.m. July 28 as the woman was driving the two on Route 65 to the Sewickley Legion. Police did not specify their relationship.

While they were stopped at Walnut Street, police said Fuller, in a bullet proof vest, pulled out and silver-and-black handgun, put it to the woman’s head and told her, “this is the last time you gonna talk about my mama.”

Police said the muzzle of the gun struck the woman’s head, causing pain.  Police said she realized the Legion was closed and began driving back toward her home in Ambridge. Fuller again put the gun to her head and told her she was driving the wrong way on purpose, police said.

She told police she began speeding on Route 65 hoping she would be pulled over. When she made it home, she gave Fuller the key to her apartment and went to the laundry room, where she pulled the fire alarm, police said.

Ambridge police went into her Merchant Street apartment and took Fuller into custody. Police found a vest under the bed, but couldn’t find the gun.

Fuller was released to Sewickley police because of where the incident took place. Fuller told officers he and the woman had a fight, but that there was never a gun involved, police said.

He remains in Allegheny County Jail on $50,000 bond.
