The victim told police he was approached by three juveniles, one of whom pointed a gun at him, and stole his vehicle. It was later recovered in Westmoreland County.

Police said video surveillance and officers familiar with him identified McClung, according to the complaint.

Channel 11 News went through police records at the time and found eight carjackings in the city in the previous two months. Pittsburgh Police said they believed three of the carjackings and one attempted carjacking in the Shadyside area were connected to the three juveniles with guns.

A spokesperson for the department said they were investigating whether some or all of the other carjackings were connected.

McClung is being charged with robbery, simple assault, receiving stolen property, conspiracy, possessing an instrument of crime, reckless endangerment and unauthorized use of an automobile.
