Fatal Homewood Bar Shooting Suspect Sought
HOMEWOOD (KDKA) – The search is still on for a gunman who opened fire at a Homewood bar early Saturday morning. The incident left one person dead and four others injured.
Pittsburgh Police may be looking into whether or not surveillance cameras captured the incident.
According to police, the shooting happened just after 1 a.m. Saturday at the Rendezvous Phase III bar on Hamilton Avenue.
Vincent Edward Holt, Jr., 27, of Homewood, died from multiple gunshots in the chest.
Four other men, all in their 20s, suffered non-life-threatening wounds.
Several witnesses, who did not want to talk on camera, say security guards are required to search customers for weapons when they enter the bar.
They believe the gunman was not searched by the four security guards who left the business before police arrived.
“This is another sad day in the community,” said City Councilman Ricky Burgess. “We pray for the victim, and the other people who were shot and their families, and we actually pray for the person who did the shooting.”
This shooting adds to the list of investigations that Pittsburgh Police are looking into in the last couple of weeks.
On, Feb. 12, police were called to Kelly Street in Homewood, where almost two dozen shots were fired.
On Feb. 21, there was another shootout on Hamilton Avenue in Homewood outside a bar.
No one was injured in those two incidents and it’s unclear whether or not these are related to the Rendezvous Phase III shooting.
