Police Search Ohio River for Gun Used In Homicide


 A search is ongoing in Bellaire, Ohio for a firearm used in a Pittsburgh homicide. The Wheeling Area Underwater Special Tactics team resumed their search in the Ohio River Thursday morning.

An eye witness told police the suspect, who was arrested Wednesday afternoon, had tossed a firearm into the Ohio River from the Bellaire Marina.

Members from the Wheeling Fire Department, Wheeling Police Department and Ohio County Sheriffs office searched the Ohio River  Wednesday night for about four hours with negative results. The conditions of the river are making the search difficult.
