TURTLE CREEK (KDKA) — Homicide detectives from the Allegheny County Police Department are investigating a shooting in Turtle Creek that left one person dead.

Just after 5:00 a.m. on Saturday, Allegheny County 911 dispatchers were notified of a shooting in the 300 block of Mortimer Avenue.

First responders found a 24-year-old man, Nigel Broadus, who had been shot multiple times. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to Allegheny County Police, a 28-year-old woman called 911 and said she had shot Broadus, her boyfriend, because he was assaulting her. Investigators say there was evidence found of a domestic incident and that reportedly Broadus had threatened to kill the woman with her legally-owned firearm before she found it first and shot him.

The investigation is not completed yet, and the Allegheny County District Attorney’s office will determine if any charges are warranted.
