June 1, 2019

SWISSVALE, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a man was shot to death on the porch of a western Pennsylvania home, and two other shooting victims were later found.

Allegheny County police say the man, believed to be in his 20s, was pronounced dead at the scene in Swissvale shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday.

Police said he had been at a party at the home and asked someone to leave, and about a half-hour later was shot by someone with a rifle who fled. Police said they didn’t know whether the shooter was the person earlier asked to leave.

Police later found a 19-year-old woman struck by either a bullet or fragments, and a 24-year-old man hit by fragments. The woman was reported in critical but stable condition, while the man was treated and released.
