Woman Killed After Fight Outside Bar In Penn Hills Now Identified

PENN HILLS (KDKA) -- A homicide investigation is now underway in Penn Hills.

Police say an 18-year-old woman, Leona Eunice Dailey, was shot in the parking lot of Flinn's Pub on Frankstown Road.

She later died at a local hospital. Allegheny County said her cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head. It is considered a homicide.

Local resident Charita Hopkins said this area is so quiet, she didn't even know the bar was open for business.

"I stand here every morning to catch the bus, and I don't see anything. Like no movement over there," said Charita Hopkins.

Penn Hills police first arrived on the scene around 2:30 this morning.

That is when they found Dailey injured near a red car, parked next to a dumpster.

"You just don't hear about things like that around this area. I mean Penn Hills is a really nice community," said Hopkins.

Through their investigation, detectives with the Allegheny County Police Department learned Dailey got into a physical fight in the parking lot of the pub with another woman.

At some point while that was happening, Dailey was shot.

"It's very sad for someone to lose their child around this time of the year. So my heart goes out to the family," said Hopkins.

Police say they have no one in custody, and they have not provided a description of the suspect.
