Police were at the Linmar Terrace Housing Complex in Aliquippa on Thursday morning after receiving a 911 call for a welfare check.

"A female says a male is unresponsive. Not breathing. Said the apartment was broken into," a 911 dispatcher said in audio obtained by KDKA. "The apartment was broken into. Some sort of disturbance there."

Police said a man was found shot inside his apartment. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim was identified by law enforcement as 36-year-old Brandon Murray of Aliquippa.

Murray's mother, Belinda Alford, told KDKA that she wants answers from the police about what happened.

"He was a good boy, and he didn't deserve this," Murray said. "Whoever did it, I just want them brought to justice. That's all I have to say."

No other information was released by state police on Thursday night. A homicide investigation is underway.
