PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — There are more new details in the shooting death of that armed transport company security guard by his co-worker.

Michael Haines, 31, of East McKeesport, was killed.

Pittsburgh Police say 22-year-old Kenneth Konias Jr., of Dravosburg, told an unidentified friend on the phone Tuesday, “I —– up. My life is over.”

A police report says Konias then began begging his friend to take off with him because he had so much money, they’d never have to work again.

Police said before the friend hung up the phone, Konias asked if the person knew anything about extradition laws in Canada or Mexico.

Investigators revealed that Haines’ shooting may have actually taken place in Ross Township, even though the armed truck was found in the Strip District with Haines body in it.

A witness is quoted as saying he heard a gunshot outside the Home Depot in Ross Township coming from the GARDA armored truck not long after the truck made a money collection at the store on Tuesday.

Josh Strawins, who lives two doors from Haines in East McKeesport, told KDKA-TV he was shocked his neighbor was gunned down and he never knew Haines worked as a security guard until he saw the story of the shooting on the news.
