Police Searching For Suspect That Killed One In A Stowe Township Bar

STOWE TOWNSHIP, Pa. (KDKA) - Allegheny County Police are looking for 36-year-old Omarr Harris after he was identified as the gunman who fatally shot a man inside Shooters Bar in Stowe Township.

Police say Harris approached the victim, pulled a gun out of his waistband and fired a shot.

The Medical Examiner identified the victim as 31-year-old Ernest Dixon; although, details of what led up to the shooting are still unclear.

Dixon was taken to the hospital where he died.

It is not known if Harris drove away or fled on foot from the Island Avenue bar.

Before he left, however, police were able to get a positive ID and have since issued a warrant for Harris' arrest.

He is being charged with criminal homicide and firearms violations.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the Allegheny County Police tip line at 1-833-255-8477.
