PA: Shooting of Iverson Gilyard Young found to be Self Defense.

A 16-year-old juvenile was arrested on Aug. 20, 2021 and charged in the deadly shooting. He was initially charged with Murder, Aggravated Assault, and Possession of a Fire during Commission of a Felony.

 In May 2022, a motion to drop the charges against the juvenile was filed based on video evidence of the shooting. 


The document said in part:

“The Court finds that the evidence is uncontradicted that Mr. Young was the primary aggressor, committed an aggravated assault upon Mr. [Redacted], was in constant possession of a firearm during this crime and threatened Mr. [Redacted] that he should not attempt to run as they left the park to retrieve some allegedly stolen items. The evidence also supports a finding that Mr. [Redacted] reasonably believed that an ongoing forcible felony (kidnapping) was being committed against him and that the use of deadly force was necessary to prevent death or serious bodily injury to himself.”
