The accused shooter, identified as Nathan Quidetto, 20, of Latrobe, has been charged with homicide in the killing a 52-year-old Tracy Squib early Monday in Derry Township, Westmoreland County, as KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh reports, adding:
Quidetto told the police that he went home on Pandora Road, got out of the car with a gun, then opened more than one fire in the direction of the house. Then he returned to his car and walked away.
Quidetto allegedly claimed to have hit the house “as a retaliation for an inflated drug procedure” to the police.
However, he told the police to KDKA that he had the wrong house. No one in the house was involved in the alleged procedure, and the police said that their intended target did not live there.
Squib’s husband and two children were also at home at the time, but were not injured.
KDKA referred to the court papers by providing these details of the shots: Squib’s husband said he woke him by complaining that he was bitten by something. When he turned on the lights, he saw severe bleeding from his upper chest.

Squib rushed to a local hospital where he died.
Squib was a much-loved elementary school teacher at the Grace Bible Church, and her friends told KDKA that they couldn’t think of anybody who wanted to hurt her.
In addition to the murder crime, Quidetto faces the discharge of a firearm into an occupied structure. Police added that there was no firearm license.
