Duquesne shooting victim identified as 22-year-old Pittsburgh man
The Duquesne shooting victim who died Saturday has been identified as Bronson Szallar, 22, of Pittsburgh, officials said Sunday.
Szallar died of a suspected gunshot wound shortly after arriving at UPMC McKeesport hospital, the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office said.
Police investigators believe that Szallar was shot in the head while sitting in a car near Grant Avenue and Wilmot Street.
Duquesne police and paramedics received 911 calls reporting a shooting about 4:30 p.m.
First responders said they found Szallar suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.
He was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead a little more than an hour later, the medical examiner said.
Two men reportedly ran from the site of the shooting toward a baseball field, police said.
Officials did not name any suspects nor provide suspect descriptions.
Allegheny County homicide detectives are investigating.
