Police Commander RaShall Brackney said Wednesday night that McClellan’s son drove through the intersection near where his father was killed – the corner of Frankstown and Homewood Avenues – about half an hour before his father was gunned down.
Detectives have canvassed the neighborhood and checked out surveillance video from security cameras, but the case is still unsolved.
