Allegheny County Homicide Unit investigators are seeking the public's assistance in the investigation into the death of a man found with a gunshot wound inside an apartment at 1007 South Ave. Tuesday night.
At roughly 8:30 p.m., Wilkinsburg police were dispatched to the South Avenue apartment in response to a 911 call, according to Lt. Andrew Schurman, spokesman for the homicide unit. Inside, they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. The victim, who has not been identified, was pronounced dead inside the apartment where he had been staying.
Schurman said early indications lead homicide investigators to believe robbery was the motive. Investigators believe the shooting happened between 8:10 and 8:20 p.m.
Anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area around that time is asked to call the county police homicide unit at 412-473-1300.
