“He was transported to a local hospital where he died from his wounds,” said Lt. Andrew Schurman, of the Allegheny County Homicide Unit.
Detectives said Garner lived at the home alone and they believe he knew the suspect.
Neighbors said they did not hear the exchange, but watched as detectives filled the street throughout the course of the night.
“I had seen that there were people out here, investigators, and there was all kind of crime scene tape so I figured something had happened. I just didn’t know what,” said Karly Swedish, a woman who works at a home down the street.READ MORE: Survey: Half Of Americans Plan To Shop On Small Business Saturday
