EAST HILLS (KDKA) – Pittsburgh Police say one person has died after a shooting early Tuesday morning in Pittsburgh’s East Hills neighborhood.
Police were called to the area of Lady Di’s Bar on Frankstown Avenue shortly before 2:30 a.m.
Officers found a male victim and a female victim who had sustained gunshot wounds.
The male was shot on the sidewalk outside. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition, but later died. He has been identified as 45-year-old John Faulk.
The woman was struck in the leg by a bullet fired from outside the bar. She was taken to the hospital in stable condition.
Police said a man fired the shots but they don’t know who he is. Police don’t believe the shooting was related to the bar itself and rarely get called there.
Tiffany Anderson only had good things to say about the bar.
“It’s not a nuisance bar. It’s a really great bar. Comfortable atmosphere. Very nice people,” said Anderson. “You can go in there and have a drink and enjoy yourself and the workers are very pleasant and nice.”
At least three evidence markers were on the ground around the bar and police had a BMW towed from the scene. Police said they believe the car belonged to one of the shooting victims.
“I just sent my prayers to the families. I’m sorry what happened to the person who lost their life. The female, I hope she has a successful recovery,” said Anderson. “Most of all, I’m going to pray for their business to make sure everyone else can be safe next time leaving and coming.”
Names of the victims have not been released at this time.
