More Details About Westmoreland Co. Fatal Shooting Released

NORTH HUNTINGDON (KDKA) – New details were released on Monday about a shooting incident in Westmoreland County that left one man dead this weekend.

According to Westmoreland County District Attorney John Peck, Saturday’s shooting on Hill Drive in North Huntingdon was during a domestic dispute.

Katherine Scelzitti had a previous relationship with the victim, 43-year-old Thomas Weber Jr.

A warrant was out for Weber’s arrest for an incident during the previous week. Weber allegedly used a key he still had to enter the house and fired shots at Scelzitti while she was in bed.

Scelzitti and her new boyfriend, Raymond Costa, reported that Weber had been making harmful threats through phone calls and text messages Friday night.

Around 3 a.m. on Saturday, Weber again let himself into the house and allegedly attempted to attack them.

Costa shot Weber in the lower extremities in an attempt to stop the attack. Weber continued to attack and struck Costa with the pipe.

Costa fired more shots, which killed Weber.

The investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed at this time.

    Another one bites the dust. All you anti-gun people out there should be required to read this and listen to this woman’s story. She would be dead right now otherwise

    Her friend, Mr. Costa, is a true hero! Yes she would be dead right now if not for “our right to bear arms!” Thank goodness we still have that right, because once you become a victim- the only one who seems to have rights is the criminal! So happy for her! I’ve been in her situation and unfortunately I did not have a gun!
