PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – One person has died after a shooting in Pittsburgh’s Marshall-Shadeland neighborhood.
Police were dispatched to the 3100 block of McClure Avenue around 12:15 a.m. Friday. They found an SUV that had flipped over with a male victim still inside.
“We believe it happened several blocks up the street, where there are some casings that were found,” said public information officer Sonya Toler. “The victim’s vehicle flipped over and paramedics had to extract him from the vehicle.”
Police believe the victim was in his car when he was shot multiple times in the torso.
Paramedics transported the victim to Allegheny General Hospital in critical condition. However, police say the victim was pronounced dead at 1 a.m.
He has been identified as Dedric Ellis, 48, of Turtle Creek. The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office says Ellis died of gunshot wounds to the trunk and his death has been ruled a homicide.
Police said there was no description of the shooter.
Marcie Kemmler, who lives at the end of the street and owns Don’s Diner, says she heard the car crash. She says the two people involved were shooting at each other in the street.
“There was two cars up at the bar up the street and they were shooting at each other while they were driving down the street and the one car got away, they haven’t found the other guy,” Kemmler said.
