Allegheny County Chief Executive Dan Onorato announced today the firing of seven employees at the Shuman Juvenile Detention Center. Six of the fired employees were childcare workers. One was a chief supervisor. Onorato says the fired workers falsified observation logs and did not perform routine observation checks of youth inmates. The county began investigating procedures at Shuman following a suicide attempt by one inmate in May. Onorato says the investigation is continuing, and he's not ruling out further disciplinary action. He even threatened to close the facility.
