MARSHALL-SHADELAND (KDKA) — Pittsburgh Police are trying to track down the person or persons who opened fire on a young man in the city’s Marshall-Shadeland neighborhood Saturday afternoon.
It happened around 4:40 p.m. on Mullins Street at the intersection of Dickson Street.
Neighbors who ran to Mullins Street found a young black male in the middle of the road. First responders pronounced him dead when they arrived.
The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed the victim was 30-year-old Albert Boxley of Wilkinsburg.
Police say Boxley was “reportedly shot multiple times.”
Several shell casings were found in the street. Neighbor Paul Ondek told KDKA’s Kym Gable he heard several shots ring out.
“At least half a dozen, probably more,” he said.
There are reports that a surveillance camera mounted on a nearby home may have captured images useful to police, perhaps even two people running from the scene.
Many neighbors are on edge. Others, like Glenn Williams, are simply outraged.
“When you live in a community where you see violence all the time, you don’t have time to be scared,” Williams said. “Nobody’s doing anything about it. The community tries to band together and do things about it, but without the help and the proper people involved, you’re not going to get things under control.”
Anyone with information on this shooting is asked to call (412) 323-7800.
