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.

Officials asked anyone with information to call 1-833-255-8477 ( 1-833-ALL-TIPS ). Tips can remain anonymous.

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.
