LINCOLN-LEMINGTON (KDKA) – Police are investigating after a man was shot and killed in Lincoln-Lemington last Tuesday night.

According to police, the shooting happened in the 1300-block of Oberlin Street around 11 p.m.

When police arrived, they found 30-year-old Calvin Doswell on the ground with gunshot wounds to the chest.

Witnesses told police that Doswell was fighting with two African-American males prior to the shooting.

One was described as wearing denim pants with a red hoodie, while the other was wearing denim pants and a gray sweatshirt.

The suspect wearing the red hoodie allegedly pulled out a pistol and shot Doswell multiple times.

Police are hopeful that surveillance video may help in the investigation. They’re also leaning on the forensics unit, who may be able to gather DNA possibly left behind by the two men involved in the fight.

While Pittsburgh Police continue to investigate, family and friends have been stopping by a makeshift memorial set up where Doswell was shot and killed.

As the rain came down Monday morning, a woman cried while standing in front of the site where her boyfriend was shot and killed.

Due in six weeks with their first child, she just kept saying she wanted him back and that he was on his way home.

Friends and family stopped to light candles.

Anyone with information is asked to call the homicide office at (412)-323-7161.
