Man shot, killed, woman injured in shooting outside East Hills bar


A man was killed and a woman was wounded in a shooting early Tuesday outside an East Hills bar, according to Pittsburgh police.

John M Faulk, 45, of Pittsburgh’s South Side Slopes neighborhood, was taken to a hospital in critical condition. He later died.

The shooting was reported at 2:15 a.m. in the 7900 block of Frankstown Avenue.

Zone 5 police officers responded to a Shot Spotter alert and found Faulk lying outside Lady Di’s bar, suffering from a gunshot wound. Inside, they found a woman who also had been shot.

It doesn’t appear the shooting was connected to the bar, police said. The preliminary investigation shows the shooting occurred outside the business, when an unidentified man approached Faulk and opened fire. One of the bullets traveled into the bar and struck the woman. No other injuries were reported.

The woman was taken to a hospital in stable condition. She was not identified by police.

Police ask anyone with information on the shooting to call 412-323-7800.

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.
