According to the police criminal complaint, Arnold Police received a call for shots fired in the area of Woodmont and Taylor Avenue in Arnold. Police responded to a back yard in Kenva Alley to find the victim had wrecked into the rear of a house at 1514 Woodmont Avenue. The victim’s wallet and two cell phones were found nearby a white KIA.

Wynkoop was transported by New Kensington EMS to Allegheny Valley hospital and was later pronounced dead about 7:18 pm. An autopsy revealed Wynkoop died from a gunshot wound(s).

Wynkoop was allegedly in Arnold to buy crack cocaine and gave a woman $70 to arrange the drug buy. The woman and another female allegedly went to Herring and told him about the white Kia and the victim having a lot of money.

While the females and Wynkoop were riding around on the Arnold Hill, Herring instructed them to drive down North Street and pull into Kenva Alley. Herring got into the vehicle and then told Wynkoop to pull into the gravel lot off the alley on the Woodmont side of the alley.
