23-year-old man shot and killed in Larimer is Pittsburgh's 40th homicide of the year
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Pittsburgh police are investigating after a young man was shot and killed in the city's Larimer section.
The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's office identifies the victim as 23-year-old Isaiah Massey of Pittsburgh.
Police were called to Shetland Street around 10 p.m. Sunday and found Massey dead at the scene, city Public Safety officials said. He had several gunshot wounds.
Officers responded to two ShotSpotter alerts for a total of 14 rounds.
"There were 911 calls as well, from people who live in the area," Pittsburgh Public Safety spokeswoman Cara Cruz said. "They're speaking to anyone who may have obviously heard something or seen something. So, speaking to anyone who is willing to help them with the investigation."
The fatal shooting is Pittsburgh's 40th homicide of the year. That surpasses the number of homicides at this time last year, which was 33.
While there's been a rise in crime, there also seems to be a decline of hope for many residents.
"In Pittsburgh, I feel unsafe period," Larimer resident Marcus Williams said. "Pittsburgh is starting to get wild. A lot of homicides, left and right every week. I feel like it's only going to get worse and worse every year."
Pittsburgh police detectives are investigating. There is no information on a suspect at this time.
