New Kensington, Pa. – A New Kensington man faces a felony gun charge after being shot inside his residence on March 20, 2019.
According to the police criminal complaint, New Kensington officers responded to the 800 block of Anderson Street for a report of shots fired with one male possibly struck by gunfire. After police arrived on scene, it was determined that Alan Fuquay, age 36 of Anderson Street was shot during an attempted robbery.
Police say the residence has been reported numerous time after persons have been seen walking to the porch of the residence and grabbing items from a mailbox and then leaving quickly. A female resident told police she had just returned from the store when a black male approached her on the front porch area with a firearm. Fuquay came to the window to investigate the commotion on the front porch and was shot by the male.
Investigators looked in the front window and could see blood in the living room and the hallway leading to the kitchen. The investigator could also smell a strong odor of marijuana and requested the resident to sign a Consent to Search form with the understanding that officers were allowed to search the downstairs area where blood was present.
The blood trail led police to the rear porch area where they discovered a Glock handgun covered in wet blood. Also located was a Nike shoebox which contained numerous bags of marijuana, a .38 caliber revolver with an obliterated serial number along with $1600 in cash. Police say they found evidence in the living room area where at least two shots were fired from within the residence. $80 was also found in the mailbox on the porch.
After release from the hospital and while speaking with investigators, Fuquay stated the firearms and marijuana belonged to him. Through further investigation, it was determined the Glock firearm was to be stolen according to the Jeanette Police Department.
In 2011 and 2012, Fuquay was arrested and subsequently pleaded guilty on a felony drug delivery charge which disqualifies him from possessing any firearms.
A Preliminary Hearing is scheduled on 07/11/2019 @ 10:00 am before Magisterial District Judge L. Anthony Bompiani. Fuquay was jailed after not being able to post bail set at $20,000 straight bond.
