Police: One Man Dead, Another Injured After Double Stabbing In Shaler

SHALER (KDKA) -- Allegheny County Homicide Detectives are investigating after a double stabbing that left one dead in Shaler Township.

Investigators said first responders were dispatched to Arlington Court around 10:30 a.m. Easter Sunday for a reported stabbing.

When officers arrived they discovered two men had been stabbed inside a home.

Officers found a 27-year-old male outside with stab wounds, officials said. Venerando Costa, Lieutenant, Allegheny County Homicide Unit said the man called police after it happened.

"He fled the house, went to the neighbors to call for help," said Lt. Costa.

Police were then alerted to 23-year-old Matthew Barndt inside the home who had also been stabbed.

Both men were transported to the hospital.

Barndt, who was still inside the house when police arrived, died in the hospital Sunday afternoon, officials said.

The victim who was outside when police arrived, survived. He remains in stable condition.

Investigators said this appears to be a domestic incident involving the two men.

Nobody else was injured.

The reason behind this stabbing can't be confirmed at this time.
