KENNEDY TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — Police say an 18-year-old man had been watching a fist fight in Kennedy Township when he was fatally shot Saturday.
Kennedy Township Police and paramedics were sent to Kennedy Lane around 4:30 p.m. for a report of gunshots.
When they arrived at the scene, they found 18-year-old Jassim Al-Maleky, of McKees Rocks, suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Al-Maleky played football at Sto-Rox High School before he graduated this past June. He was planning to attend Robert Morris University this fall.
Police said Sunday that Al-Maleky had been at a home on Kennedy Lane along with several other young people to watch a fist fight between two step-brothers. During the fight, an onlooker pulled out a handgun and fired into the group.
Al-Maleky was struck and ran to a neighboring yard, where he was later found by police and paramedics.
Police have identified everyone who was present at the time of the fight and shooting.
