They say 22-year-old Tareef McClellan was found with a gunshot wound to his head inside the detached garage of the home on the corner of Versailles Avenue.
This was after paramedics responded to a call of a female with shortness of breath, she said there was a dead body in her garage.
It was later learned that McClellan did not live there but he was known to an individual that did live there.
“McKeesport can’t even clear a week before another tragic incident happens,” said Mae Hudson, a lifelong resident of McKeesport.
Hudson, a mother of five and a grandmother of 14, lost a son to gun violence six years ago in McKeesport.
“We still don’t have the answers that we want, this is personal, this is close, I don’t know who the young man is, but this is still close in my heart,” she said. “It really saddened me that this had to happen in McKeesport.”
Other residents are also expressing the same concerns for their children.
Police say there are no suspects at this time and the motive is unknown.
