PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The family of a young man killed during a home invasion in Knoxville is searching for answers.

Pittsburgh Police say 19-year-old Antwan Leake was shot at least two times at 315 Rochelle Street at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday.

He was shot in the kitchen.

“It’s heart-wrenching, it’s heart-wrenching,” Antwan McKamey, the victim’s father, told KDKA-TV.

Police believe two gunmen entered the house and shot Leake. The family is pleading for someone to come forward.

“Say what you know,” McKamey said. “If you’re scared, I mean, God will be with you.”

“Please, whoever you are, please, for our family’s sake, come forward,” Mildred Redman, the victim’s aunt, said.

Leake leaves behind a child.

“He left a son out here and he didn’t get a chance to know his father,” McKamey said.

The family does not have enough money to bury Leake and has established the “Antwan Leake Memorial Fund” at PNC Bank.
