WEST MIFFLIN (KDKA) — A man was killed in a shooting at a West Mifflin housing complex Monday afternoon.
Officers were sent to the Mifflin Estates in the 200 block of A Drive just after 4 p.m. for a report that a man had been shot.
When they arrived at the scene, they found a 21-year-old man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in a hallway of the #100 building.
The victim was transported to a local trauma center where he was pronounced dead. He has not yet been identified.
“I thought it was fireworks at first. I didn’t know it was gunshots until I actually came outside and saw the police outside,” Mifflin Estates resident Malik White said.
“I didn’t know anything until I came to bring trash out and seen the cops up here again for a shooting, and it’s just getting old,” Mifflin Estates resident Donald Taylor said. “Like, we had one three weeks ago down at the townhouses. Somebody was shot and killed, one was injured, and it’s just getting old. Like, the cops are getting tired of coming up here.”
The Allegheny County Homicide detectives were called to investigate.
The motive for the shooting is unclear at this time.
