Police in the City of Butler are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred early this morning.

Authorities say a man was shot and killed around 1:30 a.m. along South Wagner Avenue near the intersection of West Cunningham Street, according to Tribune-Review news partners WPXI-TV.

State police also responded to the scene to assist with the investigation.

No information has been released about the identity of the victim or whether anybody has been arrested in connection with the shooting.

But a family member who went to the scene told WPXI that the man who was killed is Adam Selfridge.

The family member told the television station Selfridge went to a store with his wife and got into a confrontation with someone walking by.

A little over a mile away, another man was found suffering from stab wounds in the area of Zeigler Avenue.

Police said the incidents are connected, but did not provide additional details.

The stabbing victim was flown to the hospital by medical helicopter. No information was available about his condition.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
