Munhall man accused in fatal shooting outside strip club
Police arrested a Munhall man on homicide charges after they said he shot and killed a man outside a strip club early Sunday.
John Sumpter IV, 32, of East Hills was found dead about 4 a.m. in his car at Estes Way and Hall Street in Munhall near Club Pink, authorities said.
Paul Barone, 23, was arrested by Allegheny County Police and charged with homicide and illegal possession of a firearm.
According to court documents, Barone was seen by witnesses and a nearby surveillance camera outside the club around 4 a.m. firing shots toward Sumpter’s car before he got into another vehicle with two other men and attempted to flee before being stopped by police. Barone also tried to flee on foot but was captured, the documents say.
Sumpter died of gunshot wounds to his head and right extremity, according to a autopsy performed by the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Barone remained in custody at the Allegheny County Jail Sunday evening. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 8.
