ALIQUIPPA (KDKA) — Police in Aliquippa are investigating a fatal shooting.

Robert Melvin Hall, Jr., 18, was found shot in the parking lot of Valley Terrace Apartments shortly after midnight.

“They were dispatched to Valley Terrace A Building for a black male unresponsive,” Aliquippa Police Detective Don Couch said.

Hall was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say Hall was in a car with two other teenagers – all seniors at Aliquippa High School. Hall was the only one shot.

Investigators believe Hall was shot on Franklin Avenue near the Post Office. The evidence suggests Hall was driven to the parking lot at Valley Terrace.

“There’s [an] apparent bullet hole in the backseat of the vehicle,” Couch said. “Hall’s body was positioned that it appeared he exited the backseat of the vehicle and was laying prone on the ground.”

Police are interviewing witnesses and say the investigation is ongoing. Police say Hall had an extensive juvenile record and that he was known by police.
